Straight Year 

Internationally famed artiets in four 
distinct phases of the musical world will 
perform in Chapin Hall during the coming 
college year, it has been announced by the 
Undergraduate Committee for the Thomp- 
son Concerts. First to appear in the cele- 
brated series is Josef Hofmann, pianist 
who recently concluded a tour of eleven 
countries on three continents. Mr. Hof- 
mann will play here on October 23. 

Others engaged by the committee are 
John Charles Thomas, baritone of radio 
and operatic renown, for December 4; 
the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra under 
tlie leadership of Artur Rodzinski, for 
February 12; and the Vienna Choir Boys, a 
group of young choralists whose colorful 
program has earned them world wide 
praise, for March 5. 

Hofmann Termed Piano 'King' 

Long known for his amazing ability to 
add the "singing tone" to classic compo- 
sitions, the incomparable Hofmann's 
musical hands and brain truly have earned 
him the title, "king of pianists". Olin 
Downes, New York Times music critic, 
explains the spell of stirring performances 
as lying "fundamentally in Mr. Hof- 
mann's mastery and power to recreate 
the wonder of a masterpiece." 

His most recent recitals have been in 
South America. Now vacationing in 
Maine, the eminent pianist opened the 
current season with the Philadelphia 
Symphony Orchestra on October 16. 

With a tone quality on par with that of 
Lawrence Tibbett, John Charles Thomas 
is considered today the greatest baritone 
American concertist. He forsook the 
study of medicine because of an ardent 
and inherited love of music and opened his 
operatic career in the Royal Brussels Opera 
House achieving instantaneous success. 
Since that time he has sung throughout 
Europe and in every major opera house in 
the United States. Mr. Thomas is noted 
especially for his wide range and technical

Clement, Fuchs, Rahill Named 
To Athletic Council Positions 

A. Thomas Clement, Walter H. Fuchs, 
and William A. Rahill '37 were named as 
undergraduate representatives upon the 
Williams College Athletic Council follow- 
ing Tuesday's initial meeting of the 1937 
Undergraduate Council. Clement was 
selected to represent the Council ujmn tlie 
athletic body, while Fuchs and Rahill 
were chosen as representatives of the cap- 
tains and managers respectively. 

Clement has distinguished himself since 
arrival at Williams by activities in winter 
sports, having been for two years the out- 
standing skier in college. He heads the 
Outing Club for the current year and rep- 
resents Theta Delta Chi upon the Under- 
graduate Council. He was elected to 
Gargoyle last May. 

Fuchs has been the outstanding pitcher 
for the Purple baseball team for two years 
and last June was named as captain of the 
1937 nine. He was also selected to cap- 
tain this year's hockey sextet, where he has 
played an important role at defense. A 
member of Gargoyle, he is also manager of 
the W.C.A. Bookstore, and a member of 
Delta Upsilon. 

Rahill is Manager of soccer and presi- 
dent of the Managers' Association. He 
holds, in addition, the position of Secre- 
tary-Treasurer for the Forum and is a 
member of Phi Delta Theta. 

251 Freshmen Welcomed 
By Dr. Dennett in Jesup 

First Convocation Explains College 

Administrative Offices to 

Class of 1940 

"Don't let anyone get you in a panic," 
advised President Tyler Dennett in a wel- 
coming address to 251 members of the 
class of 1940 as officers of the faculty, ad- 
ministration, and athletic departments 
greeted the fourth largest class in the his- 
tory of Williams in the opening assembly 
of Freshman Week Monday evening in 
Jesup Hall auditorium. 

"There is not an unreasonable amount 
of work ahead," continued Dr. Dennett as 
he expressed the sincerity of the college 
in desiring to "keep you here". Citing 
the more careful selection of candidates, 
better care of health, and changes in dis- 
ciplinary methods, the president em- 
phasized the increased ability of the 
college in helping its students in the di- 
rection which they wished to follow. In 
conclusion, he urged the new class to take 
pride in good taste, to be gentlemen, and 
"to feel the friendliness that is here". 

"You are entering upon an adventure 
in higher education," declared Dr. Charles 
R. Keller, Director of Admissions, as he

Williamstown Summer Theatre Brings 

Auspicious Eight-Play Season to Close 

First Effort of Its Kind Is Termed 'Successful'; Williams Students, 
Faculty Members and Wives Are Included in Group 

By Bayley Bimce '38 i 'i 

The Williamstown Summer Theatre, an*up perhaps the greater part of the average 

organization of college students imder the 
supervision of a professional director, en- 
joyed a highly successful season here pre- 
senting eight plays at the Opera House on 
Water Street. Giving three performances 
a week through July and August the 
players closed on August 29th with plans 
to begin anew in 1837. 

For the main part, the company, actors 
and technicians, were members of the Wil- 
liams student body. However, in the 
feminine parts, wives of the Williams fac- 
ulty and undergraduates from Bennington, 
Smith, Wheaton and Miss Finch's were 
present throughout the season. 

Productions Well Attended 

An average of from 260 to 350 persons 
attended the thrice-weekly performances 
and, in the opinion of all who either saw 
the productions or were in any way con- 
nected with them, the season was a dis- 
tmct success. Summer visitors to the 
Berkshiies, townsfolk from Bennington, 
North Adams, Adams and WUIiamstown 
•nade up the audiences, with the mtrchants 
of Williamstown and their families making 

audiences. Transients passing through 
the town were also attracted to the Opera 
House, while, on at least one occasion, 
namely the Williamstown appearance of 
Walter Hampden, the audience included 
visitors from New York City and points in 
that locality. 

Through the efforts of the Board of 
Directors, Talcott B. Clapp, Thomas S. 
Morgan, and Gordon T. Kay, and with the 
co-operation of the Honorary Board, Vin- 
cent Price, Nathan C. Starr, and Walter 
Hampden, the services of S. Wesley Mc- 
Kee w:ere retained throughout the two 
months' work. Mr. McKee received his 
M.A. from Yale University Drama School, 
and has had no little exjjerience in the 
direction of playt, being engaged in that 
occupatior on Broadway at the present

Williams' Scientific Advance 

Under Hopkins 

The Mark Hopkins Centenary in honor 
of Mark Hopkins, Williams' most famous 
president, will bring to Williams College 
for the four days, October 9-12, one of the 
most distinguished groups of scholars and 
statesmen ever to take part in a Williams 
celebration according to the nearly-com- 
pleted plans of the Centenary Committee 
which has been functioning since last April 
under the leadership of O. Dickinson Street 

Symposia on philosophy and science at 
which outstanding men in both fields will 
speak, an academic procession Monday 
morning of which former president Harry 
Augustus Garfield '85 will be Grand 
Marshal, the conferring of several hon- 
orary degrees, a luncheon in honor of in- 
vited guests, and three convocations in 
Chapin Hall as well as a dramatization of 
the life of Mark Hopkins are the proposed 
features of the program, greatest in the 
history of the college, to celebrate the be- 
ginning one hundred years ago of Mark 
Hopkins' thirty-six years as president of 
Williams College.

Perry Reports Progress On 

Final Seismograph Equipment 

Preparations for the long anticipated in- 
stallation of tlie Palmer seismograph, given 
in memory of Julius Palmer '35 of Provi- 
dence, R. I., who perished in the Mohawk 
disaster, have been completed according to 
Dr. Elwyn L. Perry, Associate Professor of 
Geology. Although the delicate instru- 
ment has not yet been released by the 
California Institute of Technology experts 
\Vho are running the final tests on it, it is 
expected that the Williams College station 
will be ready for operation sometime in the 

Briefly outlining the manner in which 
the seismograph operates. Dr. Perry gave 
some indication of the detailed work neces- 
sary for the safe housing of the earthquake 
recorder. A moving beam of light passing 
before a sensitive photographic plate, 
marking the slightest tremor of the earth 
is the essential metliod in which the ma- 
cliine functions. 

Dr. Sherwood K. Haynes '32, newly ap- 
pointed Instructor in Physics, will act in an 
advisory capacity to Dr. Perry as he is 
familiar With the operation of the instrii 
ment, having been in conference with the 
inventor. There is also a possibility that 
student aid in the management of the sta- 
tion may be enlisted at a later date. 

Among the renovations which have been 
made in Clark Hall, home of the Geology 
Department, are a new dark room for the 
development of the photographic plates, 
an accurate time circuit on official govern- 
ment time, a new radio receiver, and a 
complete cement foundation for the base- 
ment of Clark Hall. 

The Williams station completes the net- 
work of seisJnographs covering northeast- 
em North America, which, according to an 
official of the United States Coast and 
Geodetic Survey Department, is well war- 
ranted as the number of shocks can readily 
bear investigation. 

During the summer months Dr. Perry 
toured the station circuit which runs 
from Ottawa, Canada, to the Fordham 
University station in New York, and in- 
cludes instruments at Harvard University, 
and the University of Vermont, in order 
that he might become more familiar with 
the management of the new machine. 

Substantial Gains of Year Show 
In Alumni Fund Financial Reports 

The report for the fiscal year of the 
Organization of the Alumni Fund, dated 
July 1, 1935 to June 30, 1936, shows an 
increase of 69% in amount of direct con- 
tributions, an increase of 47% in total con- 
tributors, and an increase of 72% in new 
contributors over the similar period in 
1934-1935. Outstanding in tl\e latest re- 
port are tlie $10,000 paid to the college for 
scholarship purposes, and $26,230 in 
special gifts. 

Compared to the 1934-1935 direct con- 
tributions to the fund of $11,754.04 is the 
1935-1936 total of $19,911.02, together 
with the former's showing of 6539 living 
alumni compared with the latter's enumer- 
ation of 6481, excluding the class of 1936. 
Of the first group, 913 were contributors 
to tlie fund, as against 1346 of the second, 
showing an increase of from 14% to 21%. 
The comparison of the number of new con- 
tributors shows 247 for 1934-1935 as com- 
pared with 424 for 1935-1936. 

Abbot P. Mills '11 was chairman of the 
organization, for 1935-1936 with E. Cros- 
by Doughty '99 as Vice-Chairman and 
Edwin H. Adriance '14 Secretary-Treas- 
urer. Officers for 1936-1937 include Ches- 
ter D. Heywood '11 as Chairman, Charles

Death Takes Two Fiimous 
Teachers During Vacation 

Carroll Lewis Maxcy, James Beebee 

Brinsmade Stricken With 

Heart Attacks 

Carroll Jjcwis Maxcy, seventy-one, 
Morris professor of Rhetorir, Emeritus, 
and Professor James Beebee Brinsmade, 
fifty-two, chairman of the Physics depart- 
ment, died during the summer months af- 
ter experiencing sudden heart attacks. 
Mr. Maxcy, who had been retired a year, 
died at his home on Hoxsey Street on 
August 8 and Dr. Brinsmade was stricken 
in a New, Bedford hotel on September 13. 

A member of the Class of 1887, Mr. 
Maxcy was a revered campus tradition. 
Except for a brief period at Troy, N. Y. 
Academy, his entire career was devoted 
to 37 years' of service at Williams. He 
was active in the affairs of St. John's 
Episcopal Church and prominent in his 
avocation as a philatelist. 

Maxcy Taught 37 Years 

Mr. Maxcy came to Williams in 1898 as 
Professor of English. He was appointed 
Morris professor in 1911 during the first 
decade of the presidency of Dr. Harry A. 
Garfield, bis lifelong friend. During the 
World War, when Dr. Garfield was called 
to Washington to serve as Fuel Ad- 
ministrator, Mr. Maxcy was Dean of the 
College. He was retired in 1935. Most 
of the past academic year he devoted to 
research work in the College library. 

Dr. Brinsmade, a graduate of Yale 
University in 1904, taught at Harvard 
until 1917 when he received his Ph.D. 
degree. During the war he served as 
First Lieutenant in the United States 
Signal Corps and in 1919 he came to 
Williams. He was continuously affiliated 
with WiUiams College from that time on 
excepting for a year's leave of absence 
in 1926 when he pursued research study at 
(Continued on Fourteenth Page) 

Following significant action effected by 
tlie trustees last June, Dr. Paul Birdsall 
has taken over the duties of Dean of the 
College and Dr. Nathan C. Starr tliose of 
Assistant Dean. 

Appointment of four new members of 
the faculty has been effected since June, 
increasing the additions to the staff for tlie 
current year to sixteen, eight of the sixteen 
being replacements. The four newest 
instructors are Franzel H. Crawford, 
Visiting Professor of Physics; Dean E. 
McHenry, and Robert W. Rafuse, In- 
structors in Political Science; and Wil- 
liam B. Willcox, Instructor in History. 
New Lecture Room for Schuman 

A new lecture room, on the ground floor 
of Goodrich Hall, will be completed this 
Monday. Constructed particularly for 
use by the Political Science Department 
but also for the use of others, the room 
will seat 250. Construction of this liall 
marks preparation for the reintroduction of 
the large lecture as part of the scheme of 
instruction. It definitely indicates that 
the success of a course sliall not depend 
exclusively on small sections. 

Visiting Professor Frederick L. Schu- 
man, is expecting to lecture to the 123 
undergraduates in International Rela- 
tions, Political Science 13-14, once a week 
in the new room. It is significant that 
there will be room for a large number of stu- 
dents who wish to sit in on the course. 
Starr to Administer Discipline 

As Dean of the College, Dr. Birdsall, 
who served as Acting Dean here in 1929 
and as a freshman Dean at Harvard be- 
fore that, is responsible for the adminis- 
tration of tlie curriculum and of discipline. 
All students with registration or schedule 
problems should see him in the first in- 

Assistant Dean Starr is charged di- 
rectly with the administration of disci- 
phne and should be seen in connection 
with matters involving attendance, auto- 
mobiles, etc. Serious disciplinary mat- 
ters will be handled by Birdsall, Starr 
and the Discipline committee comprised 
of President Tyler Dennett, Kari E. 
Weston, George M. Harper, and Nelson S. 

Four Appointments Since June 

Miss Myrtle D'Arcy remains as Re- 
corder, and Theadore C. Smith as Dean 
of the Faculty, to work with the new 
curriculum problems especially the Major 
Examination and Honors Course. Cliarles 
R. Keller continues in the office of Di- 
rector of Admissions. John H. Roberts 
has no further connection with the Deans* 

The present faculty body numbers 
seventy-nine, twenty-seven of this num- 
ber having been appointed in the past two 
years. Notable among tlie appointments

Williams Has Proven Pioneer College in Several 

Fields, Facts Regarding Courses, Athletics Show 

In the 143 years of her existence, Wil-^ 
Hams has proven the pioneer college in 
many fields, facts gleaned from various in- 
formation mines on the campus indicate 
Famous men have graduated from Wil- 
liams' halls, but incidents rather than 
personalities really form the Saga of 

One of the most interesting facts about 
the College which Eph Williams founded 
as a "free school" lies in the fact that she 
is the pioneer in American Astronomy. 
The first meteorological observations to 
be taken in an American college were 
recorded here in 1816, and have been 
continued in unbroken succession since 
that time, forming one of the most com- 
plete and important records in the country 
on the variations of heat and moisture, 
winds and storms. As 1816 was the 
coldest year since the colonization of 
America, showing almost zero tempera- 
ture throughout the Summer, the Wil- 
liams observations, which stand alone for 
that year, have assumed an unusual dis- 
tinction. Another landmark in As- 
tronomy is the little stone tower standing 
at the rear of tlie Berkshire Quad, the 
first permanent observatory built in this 

Early Science Courses Outstanding 
Other sciences were also brought to 
Williams at an early stage in her develop- 
ment. Physics was included in the cur- 
riculum in 1810 and Geology and 
Botany in 1817 — a record equalled by no 
other college. A Williams professor was 
the first to take his classes into the fields 
to study Botany, and was also the author 
of one of the first manuals of American 
Botany, published in 1817, the funds for 
publication being subscribed by students. 
In addition, the first Natural History So- 
■ ciety connected with an educational in- 
stitution was founded here in 1825. 

The record of athletics, also, contains 
its share of high lights among the American 
colleges. The first college gymnasium 
was constructed at Williams in the little 
field behind Spring Street on the spot 
where the board track now stands. And 
the first baseball game played according 
to modem rules was contested by a Wil- 
liams team against Harvard in 1866. 
Among the individual heroes, of course, 
Benny Boynton will always come first — 
the sole Purple football player to gaip. a 
berth on the Ail American team. His 
record of gaining 3S0 yards in one game, 
which included one dash of 102 yards, 
has been surpassed but once in recent 
years, in Red Grange's famous yier- 
formance against Michigan in 1924. 

But even Boynton's team never suc- 
ceeded in running up a total like the old 
'89 aggregation, which tallied 130 points 
in a single game against Union. On the 
track, Williams has had two Olympic 
champions, I^eavitt '07, winning the 
hurdles crown, and H. H. Brown '20 an- 
nexing the 3000 meter title, as well as the 
championship of England and America at 
two miles, and the cliampionahip of 
America at 5000 meters. And then there 
was the Freshman hockey team of '26 
that defeated Springfield Central High 
School, 42-0. 

Foreign Missions Started Here 
In the host of facts relating to Williams 
that have historical importance, a few 
gleaned at random show that one of the 
first American railroads was built by a 
Williams man in 1806; that the first Anti- 
Slavery Society in Massachusetts was 
founded at Williams in 1821; that the 
Hampton Institute for Negroes was 
established soon after th^ termination of 
the Civil War by another Williams grad- 
uate; and that the American Foreign 

Tel. Ill 

Residsnce Tel. 88 

Missions, commemorated by the Hay- 
stack Monument on the campus, origi- 
nated here. 

Williams' most famous men, Mark 
Hopkins and Eph Williams, should be 
mentioned in every tale of Williams. 
Hopkins, the great educator, has the dis- 
tinction of being the only Williams man in 
the Hall of Fame, where his statue was 
unveiled in 1921; Eph Williams, the 
founder, give Williams the distinction 
of being the single American college to 
have the remains of its first benefactor on 
its grounds, since his ashes, transferred 
from their resting place at Lake George in 
1920, and at first placed in the base of the 
Civil War statue in front of Griffin Hall, 
now rest in the Memorial Chapel. 

Survey Reveals Large Portion 
Of Class on936 Holding Jobs 

Although members of the Class of 1936 
are less than four months out of Williams, a 
high percentage of them are already either 
gainfully employed or taking graduate 
studies, according to reports received by 
Thomas B. Braine '36, Assistant to Albert 
V. Osterhout in Hopkins Hall. According 
to Braine, the seventy members he has 
heard from are representative of the entire 
class, and since only four reported that 
they have not yet found positions, he feels 
that the class has made "an excellent 

A survey of the results shows that more 
graduates have been attracted to academic 
life and to the commercial and manufactur- 
ing world than to any other field, with 
thirteen entered in the latter, and eighteen 
studying at institutions ranging from the 
London School of Economics to the Colo- 
rado School of Mines. Of the eighteen six 
are pursuing law, while one is in Divinity 

Twelve members of the class are en- 
gaged in Ijanking and insurance, three are 
doing advertising work, and four are con- 
nected with national magazines either on 
the editorial or business staff. One person 
is reporting for a daily paper, with another 
working on circulation. The railroad 
industry has claimed two men, and two 
others have taken up teaching. 

Several members of tlie class have been 
travelling since graduation. Pierce Wood 
had exciting experiences when he was 
caught by ttte Spanish civil war in Barce- 
lona, whence he escaped unharmed.

September 24. 1936 


Not only is this year's freshman 
class the best in the history of Wil 
liams, but it bears a further re- 
semblance to every other new class 
in that it is being flooded with ad 
vice and welcome. Its first meeting 
was to hear Mr. Keller wax prosaic 
in warning and yet use three words 
of the loftiest beauty, "honest day's 
virork," and to hear Dr. Dennett, his 

>, depth of feeUng rather revealed 
than concealed in the simplicity of 
his language, welcome the new men 
as accomplices to the conspiracy of 
which he is the ringleader to keep 
them with us for four years. The 
advice, however, is only for those 
who need it — it is advice indeed 
when it is advice in need — and the 

,■ . i welcome is sincerest when the ad 

r ' ; vice seems least to be required. 

'' It must, then, have been almost a 

relief for a member of "1940" a day 
later to receive, along with his ad- 

':': ^vice and welcome, some orders in 
connection with his first real taste, 
or rather dose, of life at Williams, 
namely and aptly named, "Rush- 
ing." He must have been impressed 
with the apparent universal desire 
to get the thing over with in as short 
a time as possible. And it is to be 
hoped he drew the correct inference 
from this regimentation and striving 
for speed — which is that the fra 
temities, as well as the remaining 
part of the social set-up here, are, 
have been, and should be, secondary 
in importance to the curricular pur- 

The freshman will have little 
trouble remembering, in this con- 
nection, that the social groups are in 
the hands of young men scarcely 
older or more experienced than him- 
self whereas the curriculum is run by 
men who devote their life to it, and 
he will have consequently little 
trouble deciding which of the two 
deserves his loyalty if the situation 
arises where both cannot have it. 
He will further understand how the 
good college man is not necessarily 
the good fraternity, and how it is the 
former and not the latter who wears 
the Gargoyle pin, secures the de- 
grees with honor, the admission to 
graduate schools, and the jobs. 

He may even be able to spot dur- 
ing the brief Rushing Period the fra- 
ternity groups that charm their 

members away from campus life in- 
stead of leading them into it. But 
what he will forget, if he takes an 
active part in the tasks and torments 
of next week, is that he does not have 
to join a fraternity, now, in the 
future, nor probably at any time in 
between. The intangible forces of 
custom, public opinion, mob psy- 
chology, or what you will, that ap- 
pear to be roping the first-year man 
into the fraternal bond exist only 
insofar as he acknowledges them. 

The real joy of the Williams man 
will be that he is a Williams man; 
and now at last from our hard edi- 
torial heart comes a word to the 
freshmen in which advice and wel- 
come combine, a sentence which 
those who have no need of advice 
can regard as a greeting; Make 
yourselves at home. Get acquainted 
with the college, the town, and the 
surrounding country — but in that 
order, for Williams College is norm- 
ally in Williamstown, not in North 
Adams. The landscape is beautiful 
and is about to put on a pageant for 
you as the Autumn matures. Walk 
around. Ask questions. Look for 
something to "write home about". 
Wear freshman caps to distinguish 
you from Seniors, who also move 
about slowly with a blank look on 
their faces. 

You will be the center of attention 
until classes begin in earnest and the 
football season gets under way, so 
enjoy it and bask in its warm rays. 
You are under careful and critical 
surveillance because Williams men 
are jealous of their reputation; but 
you will be able to live the part you 
have taken if you remember that 
tradition is to an institution what 
memory is to a man. Before you 
know it, some of your memories will 
be memories of Williams traditions 
and you will be building up Williams 
traditions as you build up memories 
for yourselves and others. And 
then suddenly the way will lie open 
before you to the realization of your 
most cherished dreams for your own 
future and for the future of your 

In the deaths of Carroll Lewis 
Maxcy '87, Morris Professor of 
Rhetoric, Emeritus, and James Bee- 
bee Brinsmade, Professor of Physics, 
the undergraduates who knew them 
feel a real personal loss. Our deep 
sympathies are extended to the fam- 
ilies of him who had completed one 
of the best-rounded careers in the 
history of the College, and of him 
whose life ended at the height of its 

There is no better way for the edi- 
tors to pay tribute to these men and 
to the teaching profession than to 
put into print some of Mr. Maxcy's 
words at his last meeting with his 
Rhetoric 5-6 class on May 28, 1935. 
Standing at the lecture desk with its 
famous lamp illuminating the dark- 
ness of the traditional Goodrich 
classroom, he said, in part: 

"This is an important occaaion to me. I have 
been teaching this course ever since the fall of 1898, 
with the exception of the two years I was dean dur- 
ing the War. In these thirty-six years, one thou- 
sand one hundred and fifty-six young men have 
taken the course 

"No other career offers a man greater satisfaction. 
When you can teach in your own Atma Mater, es- 
pecially, it is the friendshipe that are formed that 
mean the most 

"When I started this course, it was the worst bete- 
noire that any man ever had. We fought through 
the first year together, and beginning with the 
Class of 1901, it has been an unalloyed pleasure. . . . 
Sometimes a teacher is tempted to give it up and 
join the C. C. C 

"My main regret is that I shall no longer have 
this contact with the undergraduates. In its place, 
however, I have the opportunity to meet with the 
friends I have made in the past 

"And now it is all over. The play is played, and 
there is nothing left but to turn out the light." 

The editors also mourn the pass- 
ing of their former colleague, Robert 
Francis Erskine '35. One of Mr. 
Maxcy's most brilliant students, his 
untimely death cut short a promis- 
ing career in the field of journalism. 


The Epsilon Cliapter of DKE records its 
profound sorrow over the death of Carroll 
I.ewi8 Maxcy of the Class of 1887 on 
August 8, 1936, at the age of 71. For over 
half a century he was devoted to the best 
interests of the Chapter and served as 
friend and guide to hundreds of its mem- 

Greater, however, than his service to 
DKE were his contributions to Williams 
College during his thirty-seven years on 
the faculty of his Alma Mater. Senior 
member of the English Department at the 
time of his retirement in 1936, he had 
served as Chairman pro tempore of the 
Faculty for four years and Vice-Chairman 
for twelve; had frequently been Acting 
President of the college during the absence 
of its Chief Executive; had served on 
numerous important committees and had 
been one of the most powerful factors in 
the growth of Williams during the quarter 
of a century preceding his death. 

Carroll Maxcy was preeminently inter- 
ested in young people and possessed an 
unusual ability to share their interests. 
Younger teachers on the faculty as well as 
undergraduates were constantly struck 
by the ease of their relationships with him 
and his sympathetic insight into their 
problems. They will gratefully remember 
his advice and encouragement. 

To his beloved wife the Epsilon Chapter 
of DKE sends its heartfelt sympathy and 
its appreciation of the large part she has 
always played in making the hospitality of 
the Maxcy liome so warm and gracious.

Dr. Frederick L. Schuman. The thirty- 
five year old visiting lecturer, a vigorous 
anti-Fascist and contributor to many liberal 
magazines, is well known for his study of 
the Third Reich, The Nazi Diclatorship 
besides other texts. A noted political 
scientist, he first attained national promi-

Chicago HeraMrExaminer accused him of 
Communist activity, and demanded his 
immediate resignation from the Uni-

head of the Chemistry department of 
Hiram College and Mayor of Hiram, Ohio,

Facing Eight Game Schedule,

1936 Schedule 



Univ. of Vt. 






























By Woodward B. Norton >39 

Williams will open an eight game cam- 
paign to repeat its fine record of last year 
and retain the Little Three Champion- 
ship when Vermont invades Weston Field 
Saturday at 3.00 p. m. to encounter the 
Purple for the first time in several seasons. 
Coach Charlie Caldwell has lost seven let- 
termen from his powerful 1935 unit, and 
must count on the Catamounts to give his 
present lineup whatever experience they 
are to have before meeting Princeton in 
Palmer Stadium the following week. 

Indications point to an even stronger 
line than that of last year if the coaching 
staff can uncover an end capable of filling 
Captain "Toots" Welles shoes, while Cald- 
well must build a new backfield around the 
diminutive Eddie Stanley if he hopes to 
boast a scoring punch hke the one which 
averaged four touchdowns a game in 1935 
when Salsich, Moseley and Holmes were 
helping Williams to compile an impressive 
won and lost percentage. Caldwell's 
new material for this season will be de- 
veloped from thirteen members of last 
year's twice defeated yearling squad to- 
gether with a few men out of action in 
1935 because of ineligibility. 

Vermont Seems Strong 

Little is known of Vermont's present 
outlook, but the Cats last year annexed 
the Vermont State Cliampionship for the 
first time in eight years, and with twenty- 
eight squadmen and eight lettermen re- 
turning, Co-Captains Lawton and Ross 
are hoping for an improvement over their 
1935 showing when the Green won four 
and dropped five. Coach John Sabo has 
developed a formidable passing and kick- 
ing attack, but needs reinforcement at full 
and quarter which he may get from a 
Sophomore group that lost but one con-

test of a four game schedule during last 

Although no official starting line-up 
has been announced, Williams will prob- 
ably open its season with Phil Stearns and 
Tubby Kelsey at the end positions, Bill 
Chapman and either Johnny Stark or 
Mike Tenney at the tackles, and Dick 
Colman and Johnny Jay working as 
guards. The center post is a fixture with 
Captain Danny Lewis, a 200 pounder 
mentioned last year as AU-American by 
the Associated Press, making substitute 
duty infrequent for his replacements Ted 
Noehren and Johnny WoodruiT. 
Steams to Cdll Signals 

In the backfield, Fielding Simmons is 
slated to draw the starting assignment at 
half along with Eddie Stanley, high scorer 
of the East in 1935, while Doug Stearns, 
who had experience last season subbing for 
Salsich, will call signals in the opener. 
At fullback, and backing up the line on 
defense with Danny I.«wis, will be Mike

excellent standard set by the father of the 
strip, however it is hoped that the readers, if 
there be any, will be merciful in their judg- 
ment and remember that the present incum- 
bent is trying his best.) 

Musing Over The important question at 
the Opener this stage is just how well 
the 1936 model of Caldwell- 
Snively gridiron wizardry will disport itself 
in the curtain-raiser against the Cata- 
mounts from up Vermont way and in the 
important battles to follow in quick suc- 
cession. The backfield posts seem to be 
exceedingly well tended by the high- 
scoring Ed Stanley, Doug Stearns, Field- 
ing Simmons, and the crashing Mike Lat- 
vis. There is no question about the ability 
of Stanley, who performed brilliantly last 
autumn in his appearance in the den of the 
vaunted Princeton Tiger and tore other 
opposition to shreds with his stellar down- 
field gallops. Stearns proved himself a 
heady, fast, and hard-blocking signal- 
caller in his role as understudy to the 
graduated Pete Salsich. Simmons failed 
to shine as a sophomore only because of a 

series of heart-rending injuries. Latvis, 
who was a regular end a year ago, is return- 
ing to his old love at fullback, where he 
created quite a stir as a yearling and made 
a great niche in the annals of Westchester 
County football. 

The line is a problem with but three 
regulars returning to do battle under the 
Purple banner. Danny Lewis, captain 
and center, is expected to make another 
strong bid for national and sectional hon- 
ors. Such experts as Stanley Woodward 
of the Herald Tribune have voiced the 
opinion that Danny could easily gain a 
regular berth on any college eleven. The 
burly Bill Chapman has one of the tackle 
jobs clinched, while Dick Colman once

A squad of twenty-three, including 
seven lettermen from last year's eleven and 
ten members of the '39 Freshmen siiuad 
reported to Coach Edwin Bullock Monday 
afternoon at Cole Field for the first soccer 
practice of the season. Led by (iray 
Larkum '37, elected Captain last Spring 
after Ed Sheehan's withdrawjal from Col- 
lege, the squad was put through the usual 
preliminary passing and kicking drills end- 
ing with a five minute scrimmage wliich 
showed this year's men to liave plenty of 
potential power but wjiich also brought out 
many physical shortcomings along the line 
of aching muscles and abbreviated winds. 

Among the outstanding candidates for 
the forward positions this year are Keen 
Butcher, Farnsworth Fowie, Frank Foley, 
and Lee Deyo, all of whom are veterans of 
last season's campaign, the soi)hom()rc8 
Peter Gallagher and ,Iohn Harris, iind 
Dave Swetlund, a speedy wingman who 
was kept out of play last year becau.s(> of

Turner Blake, the scrappy and ix)werful 
center halfback wfho developed into one of 
the stars of "Uncle Ed's" team last year in 
his first season of play, leads the aspirants 
for the defensive posts; Tony Menkel, 
Humphrey Hadley, and the veteran Ver- 
non Franklin fighting for the other two 
starting assignments. Gray I/arkum is 
the sole returning letterman candidate for 
the fullback positions while Jack Sawyer 
and Steve Burrall of last year's Freshman 
team and Kelso Davis are pressing for the 
right fullback post.

Summer Theatre Closes 

Auspicious Season 

(Continued from First Page) 
Queen's Husband, The Late Christopher 
Bean, Coquette, and Caprice. Outetanding 
among the eight plays, in the audience's 
judgment, were Candida, Caprice arul 
Christopher Bean, although, in a poll con- 
ducted by the Theatre among its season 
subscribers, Coquette and The Ghost frain 
led in popularity. 

Members of the faculty of Williams 
and faculty wives who assisted in pre- 
senting the features in the summer life of 
the Berkshire colony were Mr. and Mrs. 
Charles L. Safford, Mrs. Richard A. New- 
hall, and Dr. Hallet D. Smith, while Mrs. 
Eleanor Bloedel, long a favorite on Wil- 
liamstown Little Theatre boards, took the 
title role in Candida and the female lead in 
Caprice. Miss Linda Grantham of New- 
York City appeared on the Williamstown 
stage in one production. Slie is a grad- 
uate of the Carnegie Tech Drama School. 

Members of the company included 
Thomas S. Morgan (who lias left College 
for a year or more of study in the drama in 
London, at tlie Old Victoria Theatre), 
Joseph H. Clement Jr., Gordon T. Kay, 
William B. Sprague, Talcott B. Clapp, 
Edwin S. Mills, Jr., Lawrence E. Wikan- 
der, and William Barrett, of Williamstown. 
The feminine roles were in the hands of the 
Misses Isabel Calaine of Wheaton Col- 
lege, Iris Mabry of Smith, Mary Lou 
Taylor of Bennington, Ibb Tennant of 
Miss Finch's School, and Jean Lewis of 

Hampden Appearance Sponsored 

The sets for the productions, which, in 
themselves, drew no little applause from 
the sijectators, were designed by Sally 
Browiiell, who did the art work up to and 
including Christopher Bean, the Theatre's 
Director, Mr. McKee, who set the stage 
for Coquette, and Coleman P. Nimick, 
whose work on Caprice was perhaps the 
high point in the sets designed during the 
two months. The stage crew was com- 
prised of John A. Diemand, Frank M. 
Foley, Charles C. Townsend, and Charles 
B. Hanan. In charge of productions and 
finance were Morgan as Business Manager, 
Kay as Production Manager, an<l Clapp 
as Stage Manager. 

The Williamstow'n Summer Theatre 
sponsored the appearance of Walter 
Hampden, world famous actor, in the first 
of a series of sketches and monologues 
from some of his more Well-kno\j^ pro- 
ductions. Mr. Hampden appeared in the 
Opera House in two monologues, one from 
his most famous of all characterizations. 

Cyrano de Bergeruc, and the other from 

The close of the season saw several 
parties in Williamstown given for the 
group which had just comjileted the first 
undertaking of its kind in the country. 
Mr. and Mrs. Safford, Dr. Winthro)) H. 
Root, and others extended their hospi- 
tality to the company during the summer 
months and following the close of the 
season, and a party at the Braehead Inn 
brought forth plans for the coming season 
which will be printed in full in a later 
issue of The Recoiid. The last Sunday 
evening in August saw the official termi- 
nation of the season in a concert given by 
Mr. and Mrs. Safford, at which Mrs. 
Safford sang well-known foreign airs with 
the background of costumes and unique 
sets to heighten the effect. 

While amusing incidents during the life 
of the Theatre were by no means un- 
common, perhaps one of the most hu- 
morous hap])enings directly connected 
with the costuming of the productions oc- 
curred when Sprague was amazed to dis- 
cover Interborough Rapid Transit buttons 
on the martial costume he was sporting in 
The Queen's HusImtuII 

Tully Kay, who "never appeared in a 
role under forty-five years of age during 
the entire eight plays", also discovered 

things not as they should be in the same 
play. "The costumers went haywire, I 
guess," said Kay, "for when I looked at my 
costume after Bill (Sprague) had seen 
what he had on, I was rewarded with the 
Bight of 'Municipa Police' on my buttons!" 

Larry Wikander's trip (four days long) 
to The Big City to procure stuffed |«n- 
guins as stage props in one production 
went to nought. The day before the jircs- 
entation of tlie play for the initial time 
McKee, Director, asked blandly whether 
or not fifti/ [XMiguins were on hand or not. 
When assured they were not brains were 
set in motion and the result was seen the 
following night — pouter pigeons!

more is to perform in the running guard 

At present Phil Stearns and Tubby 
Kelsey stand at the head of an inexperi- 
enced group of ends but they are being 
hard-i)re8sed by the 190-pound Abberley. 
,Iohn Jay has headed all op|X)8ition for the 
opening at left guard. Stark was destined 
to play regular tackle along with Chapman, 
but the post is hotly contested by Kent 
Palmer, Tom Fairbanks, Joe de Peyster, 
Mike Tenney, King White, Newt New- 
man, and the gargantuan Bobbie McCoun, 
who is in the pink of condition after a rol- 
licking of deck tennis and shufileboard on 
the high seas. 

The team, as it stands, is potentially 
strong but has been none too impressive 
due to the sloppy blocking of the line. 
Perhaps the excellence of the 1935 forward 
wall has spoiled the Purple followers. 

Behind that line the I)ack8 should have 
been charged admission to the games. 
Nevertheless, there is material on this 
present squad and the coaches can be de- 
pended upon to put it in the proper places.

and all-important battle at Princeton takes 

Louis in His Joe Ixiuis is certainly leav- 
Comeback ing no stones unturned in his 
comeback toward another 
crack at the top rung in the heavyweight 
picture. Last Tuesday night he took a 
crack at the loquacious Al Ettore in Phil- 
adelphia and did his best to even u)) the 
results of the recent Italo-Ethiopian era- 
broglio. The pre-battle boasts of the 
home town chopping block, who catches a 
nice game in the prize-ring, that he 
couldn't decide whether to knock the 
Dark Destroyer into the fourteenth or fif- 
teenth row, sound much like the old time 
cries of the departed but not missed Max 

Baer was full of confidence before he 
entered the ring, but sang a sadder song 
after the first few left jabs laimched by the 
dusky Louis. In spite of the encouraging 
words of his astute manager, Ancil Hoff- 
man, the California Adonis was taking 
quite a pasting right from the start of hos- 
tilities. Finally, at the end of the third 
stanza when Baer managed to stagger back 
to his corner, Hoffman wliispered, "You're 
going great kid, he can't lay a glove on 
you " The weary battler groaned and re- 
torted, "Well, if he can't, then keep an 
eye on that referee, because somebody is 
giving me an awful trimming "

Summer Field Surveys 
Led by Cole, Fanshawe 

Photographs, Biological, Geological 

Specimens Brought From 

Western Trips 

Furthering interest in courses at Wil- 
liams, Professor Elbert C. Cole, chairman 
of the Biology department, and John R. 
Fanshawe, Instructor in Geology, ac- 
companied by Williams students, con- 
ducted two field trips of seven weeks dura- 
tion during the summer. 

Along with Professor Cole were William 
E. Williams '36, Donald Lawrence '39, 
and J. E. Pratt '39. The party left Wil- 
iiamstown July 1, arriving at Flagstaff, 
Arizona, where a base camp was estab- 
lished. From there the group visited pre- 
historic Navajo Indian ruins of 800 years 
ago, and while at the Indian reservation, 
made a study of petrified woods found in 
that section of the country. Short ex- 
cursions throughout the state were made 
to gather information of plants and 

Professor Cole brought back with him 
40 specimens of plant and animal life, 
among which w/ere rattle snakes, iguanas, 
salamanders, a whip snake, tarantulas, 
black widow spiders, a gila monster (the 
only poisonous member of the lizard 
family), and two live horned toads. 
The party had the distinction of capturing 
an Arizona lizard, a rarity of the South- 
west. Among the plants were the fa- 
miliar desert cacti and yuccas. 

Fanshawe Surveys Canyon 
Mr. Fanshawe's trip was part of a sub- 
group of the Yellowstone Big Horn re- 
search association attempting to establish 
the structure of the central and northern 
Rocky mountains. With him were Sted- 
man Seay '37 and Henry R. Wardwell '30. 
The purpose of the party, which was the 
first geological expedition to explore that 
region since 1906, was to map and inves- 
tigate the geology of the Wind River 
Canyon, which stretches for seventeen 
miles and is situated in the middle of 
Wyoming. Most of the time was spent in 
surveying and photographing this section, 
while at one time the party chartered an 
airplane to secure aerial photographs of 
the canyon in order to complete the 
mapping and geological formations. 

III. The students shall be seated al- 
phabetically and separated in such a man- 
ner as to prevent the accidental giving or 
receiving of aid. 

IV. Students shall not change the seats 
assigned them without the permission of 
the instructor, and examinations shall be 
held only at the time and place designated 
by the Faculty. 

V. In case of the presentation of a 
paper without the signed "honor state- 
ment," the instructor shall notify the stu- 
dent, who shall sign the paper in his pres- 
ence. Otherwise, the paper shall be 
counted a total failure. 

VI. Students must be present at the 
opening of the exercise, or, if tardy, render 
an excuse satisfactory to the instructor; 
otherwise, the student shall be reported 
absent from the exercise. 

VII. There shall be only two an- 
nounced examinations each semester in ad- 
dition to the semi-annual examinations. 

VIII. The same examination questions 
shall not be used in any course for divisions 
meeting at different hours. 

IX. The instructor will be present in 
the examination room solely to insure the 
observance of these regulations, to issue the 
question papers, to answer questions, and 
to receive the examination books. 

X. Final examinations are to occupy 
three hours only, and no other examination 
may extend beyond one hour. The in- 
structor shall announce beforehand the 
time allowed for the examination, and the 
nature of the paper is to be adjusted ac-

With the Pen That 


Rate Highest 


iBvented by a College 

Professor to Bring Yo« 

Higher Grades 

A college professor noticed that 
poor grades are often due not to 
brains running low but to pens run- 
ning dry! 

So he worked out an utterly differ- 
ent and basically better pen principle 
— and Geo. S. Parker engineered it 
to perfection. 

Thug came the revolutionary Parker 
eacless Vaciunatic that has super- 
seded every old-style pen — both sac- 
type and sacless. 

Recently the student editors of 30 
college papers asked 4,699 of their 
readers, "Which make of pen do yoa 
own? Which pen do you prefer?" 

To both questions more students 
answered "Parker." than any other 
two makes of pens COMBINED! 

One reason is that the Vacumatic 
ink supply is EVER-VISIBLE, the 
ENTIRE length of the barrel. It 
isn^t merely last-drop visibility— 
doesn't merely show when your pen 
is empty. It shows days ahead WHEN 
IT'S RUNNING LOW, so it can't 
run dry against your will. 

The Vacumatic's working parts 
ore sealed in the top WHERE INK 
can never decompose them. That's 
why this miracle pen is GUARAN- 
TEED mechanically perfect. 

And the Parker Vacumatic has no 
rubber ink sac or lever filler — hence 



has room for 102% more ink wiAout 

increase m size!

Mark Hopkins^ Brother, ^Prof AV Greatly Influenced 
Growth of Williams, Was Famous as Scientist, Wit 

So much has been said and so little* 
read of Mark Hopkins that the great con- 
tribution which his brother, Albert, made 
to Williams has been eclipsed considerably. 
Susan Hopkins, eighty-odd year old 
daughter of Mark, recently requested that 
her uncle should receive due recognition at 
the Mark Hopkins Centenary in October. 
She had just cause, for Albert Hopkins 
gave Williams a personality which played 
a significant part in the growth of the

A graduate of the class of 1826, Albert 
Hopkins worked side by side with his 
brother for forty years, the two pouring 
an untold amount of strength into the 
college to which they were devoted. 
They supplemented each other's work in 
a striking fashion — Albert, a scientist, 
taught the wonders of the outside world, 
Mark, a philosopher, those of the inner 

Believed in Teaching from Nature 

Prof. Al, as he was called to his bearded 
face, possessed a phenomenal knowledge 
of the Scripture and held an extraordinary 
religious influence over undergraduates and 
townspeople. Yet formal religion he 
considered taboo. He once spoke of 
"lily-fingered clergymen who never went 
to the Heart of Greylook nor to the heart 
of anything." He was also a warlike 
emissary of peace with no qualms about 
fist fighting. He scrapped with a number 
of offenders, frightening away as many 
with his massive frame and piercing eyes. 

A remarkably well informed Naturalist, 
the Professor believed in teaching from

nature instead of text books. He organ- 
ized the first college scientific expedition 
(1863) and founded the first mountain 
climbing club in America, known as the 
Alpine Club. The present college Ob- 
servatory was the first on any American 
campus. It is the result of Albert Hop- 
kins' work, paid for in part by a portion 
of his meagre salary. 

Noted in Landscape Gardening 

Undergraduates today, singularly aloof 
from the high art of gardening, often fail to 
realize that it was Albert Hopkins who 
founded the student Landscape Garden- 
ing Society. Much of Williamstown's 
present beauty may be attributed to his 
inspiration and to his and tlie sleeve- 
roUed-up students' digging and blasting of 
the countryside a century ago. 

It is said of Professor Hopkins that he 
never did what was expected of liim. 
One day some student pranksters (they 
were a common phenomena in those 
days) placed a cow in Prof Al's room on 
the top floor of East College The animal's 
presence was sensuously foreshadowed to 
the Professor as he climbed the stairs. 
The Professor never entered his apart- 
ment. The cow was left to torment the 
students in the variety of ways Which, ac- 
cording to J. H. Denison "only a cow can 
achieve." The jokers were reduced to 
the infinite trouble of removing their tor- 
menter and cleaning up the room. There 
is no comment from Professor Hopkins on 

A man who was respected and loved 
by all who knew him, Prof Al always 
maintained his sense of humour. In his 
late years he once resented that Morgan 
Hall "sits there basking in the sun, while I 
sit here roosting on the hen roost of in- 

Garfield Speaks at Unveiling 

Of Father's Memorial Plaque 

Dr. Harry A. Garfield, president emeri- 
tus of Williams College, was the principal 
speaker at the two-day festival held at 
Poestenkill, N. Y., in honor of the 55th 
anniversary of the death of his father, 
James A. Garfield, 20th President of the 
United States. 

Before a crowd of more than 3,000 
people, gathered for an old home week 
celebration, amid colorful pageantry, Dr. 
Garfield made a passionate plea for the 
people of the world to put an end to war. 
Speaking from the same spot where his 
father first started preaching, he stated 
that "All war is madness, but that religious 
and civil war is diabolic." 

After the address a plaque was unveil- 
ed which bore the following inscription: 
James A. Garfield 
President of the United States 
Preached in this building 

During 1865-56 
While Working His Way 
Through Williams College 
Erected by the New York 
E<lucation Department 
Professor Paul H. Fall, who has just 
joined the faculty at Williams, made a few 
remarks in way of a greeting from Hiram 
College, where President Garfield studied 
before entering Williams. Professor Theo- 
dore Clark Smith of Williams presented a 
paper on "From Alexander Campbell to 
Mark Hopkins" in which he showed how 
Campbell at Hiram and later Hopkins at 
Williams had influenced the future outlook 
of the young students.

ly has Mike Tenney, Buck McCoun, and 
Ken Palmer fighting for a regular berth, 
and several others who need only seasoning

starting assignment. Among these are 
Newt Newman, Tad Fairbanks, Joe 
dePeyster, and King White. 

Sophomore Backs May Play 

Dick Woodrow, Johnny Abherley, and 
Bob Budington are the most formidable 
contenders for Kelsey's post at end while 
Dave Fackler does what little replacing tlie 
veteran Phil Stearns needs. In the hack- 
field, Hank Stanton, Henry Slingerland, 
Moon Duane, and Wilson Strudley are 
certain to see plenty of action, while 
several promising sophomores include 
Larry Durrell, Tim King, Bill Nelligan, 
Pete Seay, and Bob Sommer. 

Coacli Caldwell plans to use Stanton, 
Simmons, or Doug Stearns to do his kick- 
ing, while Stanley, Slingerland, or Ijitvis 
will throw the forwards. Work to de- 
velop a placement kicker has found 
Chapman, Stanley, Duane, Doug Stearns 
and Abl)erley all contenders. The latter 
had a good deal of work with tlie Fresh- 
men eleven last year and may do much of 
the booting this season. 

Not much can be prophesied for the 
Ephmen until they have been seen once or 
twice under fire in actual competition, 
but a good forward wall should give a green 
l)ackfield every opportunity to mold 
themselves into a unit that will cause 
Princeton, Wesleyan, and Amherst plenty 
of trouble.

Mark Hopkins Centenary 
Attracts Brilliant Educators 

(Continued from First Page) 
has contributed towards paying the ex- 
pense of the elaborate program as a result 
of the Centenary Committee's only appeal 
for alumni support, made this summer 
through an illustrated brochure of the pro- 
ceedings which was mailed to all graduates 
whose residences are known. 

Invitations have also been sent to the 
presidents and heads of the science de- 
partments of other New England colleges, 
asking both faculty and students to attend. 
As a result, more than two hundred under- 
graduates as well as many teachers, includ- 
ing representatives of Smith, Wellesley, 
and Mt. Holyoke, are expected to be 
present at the science symposium which 
will take place Saturday morning, October 

Scientific Exhibit Planned 

In addition to the symposium on science 
to be held in Chapin Hall with W. Mans- 
field Clark, Ph.D., De Lamar professor of 
physiological chemistry at Johns Hopkins, 
presiding, a series of exhibits will be shown 
in Griffin Hall, picturing the researches of 
such men as Morley, first to accurately 
weigh the atom, Scudder, greatest ento- 
mologist of his time, and the others whose 
contributions put Williams in the forefront 
of scientific advance throughout the world 
during the middle years of the nineteenth 

A philosophy symposium at which 
William E. Hocking, Ph.D., professor of 
philosophy at Harvard University, will 
speak will also be held Saturday morning to 
commemorate Mark Hopkins as one of the 
great philosophers of his time. Professor 
Hocking will also speak at the general 
convocation in Chapin Hall Friday eve- 
ning, October 9, the first event on the 

Pilgrimage to Stockbridge Scheduled 

This convocation, presided over by 
President Dennett, will have as its other 
speaker Charles A. Browne, Ph.D., super- 
visor of Chemical research, U. S. Depart- 
ment of Agriculture, who will talk on 
"Trends in Science at Williams College 
during the time of Mark Hopkins." Dr. 
Hocking's subject will be "Philosophy and 
Religion One Hundred Years Ago." 

Besides the convocation in Chapin Hall 
Sunday evening at which President Den- 
nett will preside and James Bissett Pratt, 
Mark Hopkins Professor of Philosophy at 
Williams College, will be the main speaker, 
a pilgrimage will take place Sunday after- 
noon to Cherry Cottage, the birthplace of 
Mark Hopkins, at Stockbridge where a 
bronze tablet to be placed on a boulder in 
front of the homestead will be dedicated. 

After the convocation in Chapin Hall 
Monday morning where President Dennett 
will speak and the honorary degrees will be 
conferred, over 600 people are expected to 
sit down at a luncheon in Lasell Gymnas- 
ium, the last event on the Centenary pro- 
gram, at which John C. Jay '01, president 
of the Society of Alumni, will preside.

of the college health office, while William 
C. Fowle, freshman coach and instructor 
in physical education, spoke briefly on 
athletics. Dr. Paul Birdsall, newly-ap- 
pointed Dean of the College, who pre- 
ceded Dr. Dennett, enumerated the ma- 
jor functions of his office with regard to 
schedules and future orientation. 

Following the Jesup assembly the 
freshmen attended a reception by the 
Williams Christian Association in the 
Lasell Gymnasium, where they were in- 
troduced to Dr. and Mrs. Dennett and 
faculty members. 

Deerfield Sends Largest Group 

The initial convocation of the new class 
climaxed several days of the yearlings' 
procuring room keys, unpacking, getting 
acquainted, and general bewilderment in 
their new surroundings. 1940 represents 
twenty-five different states and Cuba, 
and more than 100 various schools with 
Deerfield's seventeen numerically domi- 
nating the contingent, followed by Kent 
with eleven and Exeter with ten. Fifty 
are sons of alumni, while nineteen have 
brothers in the three upper classes. With 
the addition of three transfers and ten 
former students, the dean's office stated 

that the student body would not exceed 
last year's total of 822. 

Tuesday morning was devoted to final 
registration and conferences with faculty 
advisers, followed by a meeting with the 
Undergraduate Council at L30 p. m. in 
Jesup, at which assembly the rushing 
system was explained. At that time John 
N. I.eonard, rushing arbiter, spoke, and

Hopkins Science Program 

Large Attendance Expected for 

Session in Chapin Saturday 

Morning, Oct. 10 

Dr. Irving Langmuir, Ph.D., Associate 
Director of the Research Laboratory of the 
General Electric Company, is to be one of 
the speakers at the Saturday morning 
science symposium, of the Mark Hopkins 
Centenary, October 9-12, according to 
an announcement made by O. Dickinson 
Street '01, Director of the Centenary. 
Others who will lecture are John C. 
SliUer, Ph.D., Professor of Physics at the 
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 
and Herbert S. Jennings, Ph.D., Professor 
of Zoology at Johns Hopkins University, 
while W. Mansfield Clark '07, Ph.D., 
De Lamar Professor of Physiological 
Chemistry at Johns Hopkins University, 
will preside. 

While no definite statement can be made 
at this time, it is expected that this sym- 
posium, to be held in Chapin Hall, will 
bring together the greatest group of sci- 
entists ever to assemble on the Williams 
campus. Several of the heads of science 
departments in other New England col- 
leges to whom invitations to attend the 
meeting were sent have already accepted 
and arranged to come. In addition a large 
number of undergraduates and members 
of the science faculties in the various col- 
leges are coming, including about fifty 
members of Bennington College and a dele- 
gation from Amherst. 

Scientific Progress Is Subject 

The various speakers will take topics 
dealing with the progress in scientific 
method since the lime of Mark Hopkins 
and with scientific thought of the present 
day. Dr. Langmuir's subject will be 
"Two Dimensional Liquids and Solids" 
while Dr. Slater will speak on "Molecules 
and Solids" and Dr. Jennings on "Funda- 
mental Units in Biology". Besides this 
eymposium, there will he the speech on 
"Trends in Scienceat Williams College dur- 
ing the Time of Mark Hopkins" delivered 
by Charles A. Browne, Ph.D., Super- 
visor of Chemical Research of the United 
States Department of Agriculture, at the 
General Convocation in Chapin Hali 
Friday evening which will open the Cen- 
tenary celebration. 

Dr. I^ngmuir, a member of the Na-

Tentative Endowment System To 

Provide for Higher Type 

Of Speakers 

With the announcement by President 
Tyler Dennett of the appointment of 
Dean Paul Birdsall to the Forum Board, 
the Faculty representation on this body for 
the present year is completed, Professors 
John F. King and Richard A. Newhall 
having been appointed last spring. 

This season the Forum, instead of re- 
ceiving a grant from the S. A. C. as has 
been the custom in former years, is to 
operate on an endowment given them by 
the College which will provide a larger 
sum of money for their disposal and which 
should insure a higher grade of speakers 
than has ever before been possible to 
bring to Williams, The endowment, 
which amounts to about a thousand dol- 
lars, has been granted tentatively, and the 
continuance of this policy in future years 
will depend greatly upon the reaction of 
the students to the higher type of speakers 
who will appear this year. 

Political Debate Planned 

The first presentation of the Forum is 
to take place in October under the joint 
auspices of that organization and the 
Litieral Club and will be a triple debate 
in connection with the Presidential elec- 
tion on the platforms of the Republican, 
Democratic, and Socialist, parties. If

William Dwight Whitney Frofeuor of European 

In general, since the election of 1910 
I have tended to vote for the Democrats 
m national elections. The chief leason 
lor this is that a Democratic adminis- 
tration is less disposed than a Repubhcan 
one to permit the financial and industrial 
groups to dominate the government and to 
decide what policies are best for the 

Since the Civil War these groups, rather 
than the farmers and workers, have en- 
joyed a favored position in national 
affairs. They are the champions, broadly 
speakmg, of laisset-faire because it offers 
tnem the opportunity to manage the 
economic affairs of America with the 
P«at«st freedom to their own advantage. 
In my opinion these groups, as a result of 
tneir favored position, have enjoyed more 
than their fair share of the national in- 

I prefer an administration that is inde- 
pendent of their dominion without being 
hostile to their just interests as part of a 
complete national economy. The bitter 
hostility of these groups to Roosevelt is a 
good indication of the president's inde- 

Supports National Economic Planning 

Furthermore I am convinced that the 
United States is an economic unit and that 
nation-wide economic problems should 
be handled by the national government 
because the latter is more powerful than 
the state governments and is consequently 
strong enough to be effective. In an in- 
dustrialized world large scale organization 
and planning are essential. 

At present business is organized on a 
national scale and planning is done by 
those who control the great corporations. 
They plan primarily for their own in- 
terests and only in a secondary manner 
(if at all) for the interests of the com- 
munity. They, and the Republican 
leaders as their agents, are championing 
states' righta because they recognize that 
forty-eight state governments, as repre- 
sentatives of the community, are weaker 
than one national government.

A story of progress — one which should 
rouse the interest of Williams followers 
and make them eager to watch the future 
advance of the College — is told in the an- 
nual Administrative Report which ap- 
peared Wednesday. Effected in the thirty- 
seven page President's Report is a forceful 
analysis of the changes and needs of Presi- 
dent Dennett's second year, one which 
many considered calm after an initial year 
of far-reaching personnel and curricular 

Notable among the recorded accom. 
plishments of the past year are the balancing 
of the budget for the first time in over 
twenty years, the reorganization of the 
Deans' Office staff, the abolition of com. 
pulsory daily chapel, the appointment of 
fifteen new faculty members (one more has 
been added since the report was written), 
the institution of "bunch cuts", and the 
increase in alumni interest and financial 
backing. Yet under the head of "Needs", 
the President indicates among many other 
things the urgent necessity of at least eight 
new buildings, and of a twenty percent in- 
crease in the size of a higher salaried fac- 
ulty body. 

College Financial Status Improved 

Credit for a balanced budget is shared 
by many, according to the Report, which 
praises particularly Charles D. Makepeace 
'00, College Treasurer, besides undergrad- 
uates who have "submitted cheerfully to 
the disadvantages of a reduced teaching 
staff" and in some cases poor equipment.

Japanese Naval Officer Guest 
Of College for First Semester 

Introduced by the Japanese Embassy, 
Lieutenant Commander I. Ohtani, of the 
Japanese Imperial Navy, early this week 
completed plans for a semester's study of 
Political Science, American History, and 
English at Williams. 

The latest of several Japanese to study 
at Williams during the past two decades, 
Ohtani, who is thirty-five years old, is con- 
sidered a guest of the College and has not 
been required to register officially. He 
plans to sit in on the above named courses 
as well as several others, and vyill also do 
some special tutoring in English. 

The Oriental visitor has been in this 
country two months, having recently 
arrived from Washington, D. C. He will 
live on Southwall Street during his stay 
in Williamstown.

Library Completes Index Of 

Whileman Record Collection 

Thorough index of the 847 Victrola 
record compositions, given Williams by 
Paul Whiteman in March, has been com- 
pleted by the College Library staff with a 
result that for the first time in Williams 
history a music library is operating in full 

In the main floor files, undergraduates 
may now find a comprehensive collection 
of records. There are renditions by the 
Philharmonic and Philadelphia Sym- 
phonies and by Fats Waller and Duke 
Ellington. There are compositions of 
Bach, Wagner and Puccini and of Irving 
Berlin and Cole Porter, in addition to 
countless others in the collection chosen by L. Safford, Director of Music, and 
an undergraduate committee last spring. 

The records are stored in the rear of the 
main floor of the Chapin Library and may 
be taken out by students and faculty 
members at any time. Reed needles will 
be given out to those who possess none. 
A handsome victrola, also the gift of Mr. 
Whiteman, is at the disposal of under- 
graduates in the Choir room in the 
Thompson Memorial Chapel. 

Although the cross indexing process was 
not completed in June, records were lent 
and the new institution won instant pop. 
ularity. The Library reporte slight in- 
terest to date this fall, but expects a rush, 
after the activity of college opening sub- 
sides. A number of the records will be 
used in Mr. Safford's Senior course in 
History and Appreciation of Music, Fine 
Arts 11-12. 

Williams-Princeton Broadcast 

Since the Princeton-Williams foot- 
ball game Saturday will be broadcast 
by station WEAF and affiliated sta- 
tions immediately following the World 
Series baseball game, The Rbcord 
will not provide a broadcast on the 
I^b campus, as was done last year. 

Something new in the way of football 
entertainment will be seen Saturday at 
Palmer Stadium when the much publi- 
cized Princeton Invitation Mile Race will 
be run between the halves of the Williams- 
Tiger struggle. Interest in the race is 
heightened by the knowledge that Jack 
Lovelock, who this summer set a World's 
record for the 1500 meters at the Olympic 
Games in Berlin, and followed with another 
record breaking performance in the three 
mile race at White City in London, may 
hang up his spikes after the Princeton 

Glenn Cunningham, who added a 
World's record in the half-mile to his list of 
accomplislmients at the post-Olympic In- 
vitation Meet at Stockholm, will also race, 
anxious to get revenge for his defeat at the 
hands of the New Zealander in Germany.

Kansas State College who gamed a berth 
on the Olympic team when he beat Bill 
Bonthron by matching the Princetonian's 
famous kick finish with one even better,

Three Broke Oljrmpic Record 

The last race in which Lovelock, Cun- 
ningham, and San Romani all took part saw 
the first six finishers break the existing 
Olympic record, while Cunningham bet- 
tered the best previous world mark when 
he was still twenty yards behind the tiny 
Lovelock. San Romani, after trailing 
for the first three laps, ran the last one 
like a dash man to finish fourth; but Don

hattan was considered the United States' 
only chance to prevent a Finnish sweep

Three cautions to fraternity members, 
issued from the lips of President Tyler 
Dennett, keynoted the sole address at the 
1 43rd official opening of Williams College 
on Saturday when a large proportion of the 
undergraduate body met in Cliapin Hall 
for what may well be called an informal 
get-together. Dr. Dennett considered the 
"acute" fraternity situation, and con- 
trasted the life of students under Mark 
Hopkins with those of today. 

The plaque, offered by the faculty each 
year to the fraternity with the highest 
scholastic average, was presented by Dr. 
Dennett to Robert W. Booth '37, who 
represented Plii Gamma Delta. President 
Dennett read the names of the fraternities 
whose average was above the average of the 

Discusses Relation to College 

First of the three cautions offered to 
fraternity members by Dr. Dennett was 
"keep material standards of living down." 
"The habits of high living are hard to 
break," he said, picturing the difficult sit^ 
uation of the young graduate on his own 
who had grown accustomed to the lux- 
urious fraternity life. Many Deans' Office 
cases spring from tlie mibfonluiiuf, uf 
students who feel they must keep up the 
pace of financial superiors. 

Secondly, listeners were warned to 
"sustain two separate relationships to the 
College," one as an individual, the other 
as a member of a corporation. In an ex- 
tremity, it was stated, a fraternity shall 
be treated as an individual. 

Fraternity Situation 'Acute' 

Finahy, "don't get in a panic." For 
the third year in a row the college will 
require more in the way of scholastic atr 
tainment from its undergraduates. Dr. 
Dennett said in preface to this caution, and 
added a few words on the "conspiracy to 
keep every boy in college." 

Relative to the "acute" situation of 
fraternities, the President said, "I do not 
contemplate any change at the present 
time, for I expect it to solve itself within 
the next few years." He did, however, 
recall his "meat-axe" slogan from the 
annals of 1934, suggesting that a fraternity 
which stepped out of line might find iteelf

Dr. Brett, Butcher '38, Back From War-Torn Spain, 
Had Thrilling Adventures, Saw Horrors of Combat 

By James M. Bums '39 

Stirring tales of their adventures in' 
Spain after being stranded in turbulent 
civil war areas were related here Thursday 
by Dr. Lewis E. Brett of the Williams Col- 
lege faculty and W. W. Keer Butcher '38. 
Although both these persons encountered 
the same general situation, their experi- 
ences differed greatly, since Dr. Brett was 
in Madrid when the outbreak occurred, 
and after a tense ten-day period there was 
able to travel east to Valencia, while 
Butcher spent a week under rebel author- 
ity sixty miles from Madrid before he was 
permitted to entrain northward to Bor- 

Dr. Brett was studying at the National 
Library in Madrid when, with no warning, 
the storm broke. First realization of the 
extent of the conflict came when he found 
that no trains were leaving Madrid in any 
direction. But the intensity of the revolu- 
tion was not fully recogniied imtil loyal- 
ists began to execute rebels in Madrid. 
Upon hearing that an English woman had 
been accidentally shot to death when she 
appeared on her balcony the refugees in 
the capital stayed as oloae to shelter as 

Dr. Brett was living at a pension, which 
he quickly deserted for the American Em- 
bassy when he heard that Communists 
were planning to burn a church imme- 
diately adjoining the pension. The fol- 
lowing eight days at the Embassy, Dr. 
Brett said, were ones of great anxiety, 
since the Reds had threatened to burn the 
city to the ground if they should lose a de- 
cisive battle, while a victory for the gov- 
ernment would lead to looting by over- 
enthusiastic mobs. Since 175 refugees 
were living in a building designed for 
twenty, many men at the Embassy spent 
the uncomfortable week sleeping on stable 
floors. Frequent forays had to be made 
through sniper-infested streete by the men 
to get food. 

After a week of vain appeals to the gov- 
ernment for a special train the refugees 
were elated to discover that one would 
leave for Valencia, where the United States 
Cruiser "Quincy" was awaiting them. 
"At Valencia," Dr. Brett said, "I didn't 
see a church that had not been burned, al- 
though there had been comparatively^few 
destroyed in Madrid." From there the

No. 22 


When President Dennett addressed the undergraduates at the meet- 
ing in Chapin Hall on Saturday, they were once again made aware of the 
strong hand at the helm of the college. It was only natural that the now 
famous meat-axe should catch the eye. We do not altogether like the 
notion that it will make hamburger of the innocent freshman living in the 
quad as well as the senior living in the house who happens to disgrace his 
fraternity, but at least this should lead to an increased sense of responsi- 
bility on the part of the upperclassmen who actually control the standards 
of the house. The sound common sense of his warning about a too high 
standard of living should be taken to heart, especially by the entering 
class. As for stiffening of academic standards, we seniors may heave a 
personal sigh of relief that we are sneaking out before comprehensives 
start in, but at the same time we realize that the Class of 1940 will be 
better educated at graduation. 

An even better introduction to the policy of the administration may 
be obtained by reading carefully the newly issued Administrative Report. 
The cojnprehensive and highly encoumging picture of past accomplish- 
ment and plans for the future of the college is required reading for all who 
enjoy that great Williams sport of discussing the powers that be, whether 
in the Gym Lunch, Jesup Hall, or the Faculty Club. 


To the Freshman: This week, perhaps for the first time in your life, 
you are making a fairly permanent decision almost exclusively on your 
own, under difficult conditions for exercising good judgment. Keep your 
eyes open during the second period especially, if you are to have a clear 
mind when the time for the final choice comes. Remember that the rush- 
ing agreement, which is more in your interest than in the interest of the 
houses, can be enforced only through your cooperation. If any frater- 
nity begins cutting corners, you should have no qualms about reporting 
the matter to the proper authorities. Your own personal honor as well 
as the honor of the house is involved. Finally, we assure you in all sin- 
cerity that fraternity membership seems more important this week than 
it ever will again. 


Enough has been said, if not printed, about the successful first season of 
the Williamstown Summer Theatre; to have heard of one is to have heard 
of the other. But there is this conclusion to be drawn from its record, 
namely that there exists at Williams the talent for acting and in Wil- 
liamstown the demand for dramatic productions. By itself that is hardly 
astonishing; but, coupled with the fact that the College's established dra- 
matic organizations undergo each year a life-and-death struggle with 
failure, it is at least thought-provoking. 

The Summer Theatre must have had something, besides the ani- 
mation of its youth or the mildness of the season, that it could draw the 
large audiences it did, night after night, not a quarter of a mile from 
where dramatic organizations with the backing of Williams' name and 
reputation have had to battle over a single date, from where the drama 
has to wait upon the football game or the houseparty. Perhaps it was 
the feminine touch; except that even the personnel was to a large extent 
what it has been for Williams theatrics. 

No, the fact of the matter seems to be that what the campus lacks 
is not the opportunity for that kind of self-expression which acting alone 
provides but rather an opportunity for competent training therein. 
There is no need to repeat the arguments of the late George Pierce Baker 
on the value of such training; not only is all the world a stage, but all the 
stage a world. Williams is proud to be without peer in certain respects, 
but a peerless lack of adequate dramatic instruction, not to mention lack 
of thft-chance for dramatic study, cannot be a subject for our best boasts. 
The dearth has perhaps been fully appreciated only by the Cap and Bells 
and Little Theatre audiences. Hereafter, however, even they, insofar as 
they overlap the audiences of the Summer Theatre, will be harder to 
please — and how about the actors themselves, after two months under 
Mr. McKee? 

The Williamstown Summer Theatre may not survive beyond its 
first season but it has shown us the need of further opportunity for study 
and instruction in dramatic and theatrical art. Perhaps this "further 
opportunity" can come in the form of adding to the faculty someone 
whose fuUtime job will be to supply these needs. In the end it may 
amount to only a slight improvement but an improvement it will be 
nonetheless, for we start at aorfttoh. 



Obituary Obitiury notices are always 
boring tjiings to write but 
Konkapot feels obligated to announce the 
official decease of a movement of last 
spring called the Veterans of Future Wars. 
We had hoped that the Princeton remnants 
this year would have the good grace to 
announce their own demise, but from a 
notice we just found in our mail tlie other 
day we understand that they are loath to 
do so. The V. F. W. successors have at- 
tempted to resurrect interest in an or- 
ganization which has long since gone by 
the boards. They urge that all is not yet 
lost, and yet fail to take even a definite 
stand on the current campaign. Being of 
that dubious category called Constitu- 
tional Democrats, they waver between the 
potential evils of the Liberty League and 
the obvious inflationary tendencies of 
Roosevelt. If their campaign against 
excess expenditures were to be carried to 
its logical conclusion (the bonus is a dead 
issue until after election), they would put 
up some sort of front opposing the policies 
of the present Administration. 

As a matter of fact, a New York group 
supposedly affiliated with the Inde- 
pendent First Voter's League, going under 
the name of the Veterans of Future Taxes, 
has stolen what should have been V.F.W. 
thunder. The young Manhattanites have 
a just claim to disinter the original spirit 
of the Princeton Group, since that spirit 
departed from this world about three 
weeks after the first notices of the move- 
ment had been seen in the papers. 

The proof of all this is really very 
simple; we indict. the V. F. W. "on its 
record", a good Democratic phrase. 
Last spring Lewis J. Gorin claimed 450 
posts with an estimated membership of 
48,000. As early as last June the Williams 
Post, already losing interest, had a notice 
from Princeton beginning, "we have not 
heard from you since your appointment as 
post commander" — the notice was a fonn 
letter. At one time the V.F.W. planned 
(1) a nationwide radio debate with Com- 
mander Van Zanten of the Veterans of 
Foreign Wars, (2) a little bit of congres- 
sional publicity when Representative 
Maury Maverick, Texan Democrat, an- 
nounced that the bill for "adjusted com- 
pensation of one thousand dollars, pay- 
able in 1965" would be brought up on the 
floor of the House,'(3) the publication of 
an official book on the subject, and (4) a 
"treasury raid and bonus disbursal", 
with "dancing in the streets" at Wash- 
ington last June 15. 

All the four planks of the V.F.W. just 
mentioned fell through, except for Gorin's 
treatise, which had only fair success in 
spite of lavish publicity by Lippincott, 
The organizers should have slipped quietly 
out of the picture then; their reputation 
was good — they had had good publicity 
from the March of Time, the Collegiate 
Digest, and especially the Hearst press, 
The movement was recognized as a prank, 
and founded on satire, and hence without 
the initiative to keep its grip indefinitely. 
But they kept on, announcing a mass 
meeting this summer; in spite of a careful 
inspection of the New York papers we 
failed to read a word of the agenda of this 

Here on the Williams campus, where 
the enthusiasm was confined to the sale of 
seven copies of Patriotism Prepaid, all to 
faculty members who wanted to observe 
the so-called "brilliant travesty of Ameri- 
can thought and government" in proper 
academic seclusion. The 150 local post 
members have mostly lost their pins, and 
have relapsed into their usual Waldenized 
and Braeheaded lives, their only senti- 
ments being an occasional yearning to 
get their quarter back for a couple of 
glasses of beer. Hence: Ad V.F.W. 
juvenes; requiescat in pace.

Monday, September S8 — Upperclassmen 
of acceptable schoUistic standing may se- 
cure driving permission from the Deans' 
Office not later than 6.00 p. m. Tuesday. 
After that hour the operation of motor ve- 
hicles without the necessary permit will be 
considered a violation of the college rules. 

The college rule which prohibits owner- 
ship and/or operation of a motor vehicle 
by a sophomore or a freshman was effective 
this morning. Members of these classes 
who have driven cars to Williamstown for 
travelling during the college recesses are 
expected to put them in dead storage and 
deposit the keys in the Deans' office.

tween the rebels in the north and the loyal- 
ists southeasterly in the Sierra Guadar- 
rama mountain passes. 

When a large rebel force invaded the 
town, the few loyalist soldiers barricaded 
themselves along with the American group 
in an old palace, whose five-foot walls suf- 
ficed for two days to keep the rebels off. 
Soon, however, the Americans heard that 
heavy artillery had been brought to bear 
on the palace, and an ultimatum of "come 
out or be blasted out" had been delivered 
by the rebels, so, according to Butcher, 
"out we went, bag and l)aggage, only to 
discover that the loyalists within had sur- 
rendered and we could return." 

Other trying moments came when a 
bomber circled about menacingly over- 
head, only to drop a bundle of propaganda 
instead of a bomb. Our first understand- 
ing of the seriousness o! the revolution, 
however, came when an order was issued 
declaring that anyone discovered discuss- 
ing politics would be executed. Another 
significant incident was the attempt of a 
guard to seize some snapshots Butcher had 
taken of rebel armaments and jMsitions, 
but the American gave him only an unused 

The party was only too happy finally to 
receive a military safe conduct to France. 
The trip uj) was particularly slow since the 
rebels insisted that the train passengers 
disembark at every station and line up on 
the platfoim to give the Fascist salute. 

"On the whole," Butcher said, "the 
mention of the word 'Americano' and a 
ready smile were better than a military 
pass in this country of people inherently 
very courteous. But we did value having 
a strong and friendly government at home 
on which to depend when we knew of noth- 
ing else that offered any security."

1936 Team Shows Reserve Power Against Vermont 

Purple Downs Vermont 
20-0 in Season s Opener 

Williams Displays Inexperience As 

Poor Blocking, Passing Mark 

First Encounter 

BiilkiriK !it times tliroiiKh inoxporioiire, 
but sliDWiiiK cnDUKh power at others to 
raise memories of its formiilahle preileees- 
sor, tlie l',)30 model of CImrley Caldwell's 
Williams I'ootliall macliine j^ot "'T I" '"i »"- 
certain and ineoiu'lusivo start Saturday, 
downing an underrated Vermont Univer- 
sity eleven liy the seore of 2l)-0. As a pre- 
lude to the ecmiinf? erucial ^nmo, with 
Princeton, Saturday's opener bred no con- 
li<lence in t he Purple eamp, but the work of 
the veterans Captain Daimy Lewis and 
Eddie Stanley, who led respectively a 
slubhom defensive line and a ba<'ktield in 
which a number of sensational substitutes 
showed their wares, proved that there is no 
dearth of ability on the Purple scpiad. 

On the lips of all Williamslown were the 
names of such previously \mheard of i)lay- 
ers as Fielding Simmons, Hill Stradley, and 
Pete Seay, backs, ami Bob BuddinKton, 
.lohnny AbberU'y and Ted Noehren in the 
line, all of whom fiKured in an exhibition 
reassuring to those who had counte<l the 
passing of the Class of 1035 as the death 
knell of Williams football. Th(> darkest 
spot of the entire afternoon was the com- 
plete failure of the Purple pa-ssing attack, 
in which not one of eight attcMiijits was 
completed, and in which no less than live 
were intercepted by the well-drilled Cata- 

So raggfi'l was the Purple in the first 
quarter that it was not until the third play 
of the second iieriod that Eddie Stanley 
broke the ice on an off-tackle plunge from 
the '2-yard line. Bill Chapman, veteran 
tackle, added the extra point with a place- 
ment kick. 

The Ephmen continued to push through 
Vermont for first down after first down, 
principally between the twenty-yard lines 
reaching a scoring position only to throw 
passes to waiting enemy backs, with the 
result that no further scoring was done in 
the first half. 

R<^ceiving I he kickofl at the start of tlie 
second lialf, Williams began to take the 
ball game more seriously, taking advantage 
of Sunderland's bad punt to start a touch- 
down drive from the Vermont 33-yar(l 
stripe. On an attempted pass, Eddie 
Stanley found himself hemmed in by ta(ik- 
lers and was forced to run, snaking through 
a swarm of Vermont linemen to gain a first 
down on the Cats' seventeen-yard line. 
After Simmons and Tjatvis had carried the 
ball to the Vermont 4-yar(l marker, Sim- 
mons smashed off right tackle to score the 
second touchdown of the day, Chapman 
failing to convert from placement, leaving 
the score 13-0. 

Again the Puri)le went into its offensive 
slump, repeatedly handing the ball to the. 
visitors on fumbles and i)Oor i)asses, and an 
otherwise dull second half was enlivened 
only when Bill Stradley, .Iimior flash, took 
the l)all from kick formation, hobbled it, 
and then outsprinted the entire Vermont 
team in a sensational 70-yard dash for a 
touchdown. Moon Duatie, ))laying full 
back in his first varsity appearance, jjlace- 
kicked the final jjoiiit of the game. 

Throughout the game the Williams 
blocking was uniformly ))oor, with the 
absence of Dick Colman, veteran running 
guard, keenly felt. The light but amaz 
ingly fast sophomore backs, Larry Durrell 
antl Pete Seay, showed to good advantage 
as they went for several long gains l-hrough 
a broken field, while Tim King, wearing t he 
familiar No. 4 jersey, looked and pla.yed 
like a second Nick Holmes in his first game 
as second string quarterback. The play of 
Ted Noehren, substituting for Danny 
Lewis at center, relieved the doubts of

Loses in Opening Encounters 

Three of the Purple's future football 0|)- 
ponents fared ingloriously in their opening 
contests Saturday, being able to net only 
two ties and a loss in the games played. 
Amherst and Wesleyan both fought score- 
loss duels with Hobart and the Coast 
Ouard resjjectively, while Middlebury 
scored a late-game touchdown to nose out 
Union in Schenectady. 

With the Harvard game a week away, 
Amherst was held even in all departments 
by a siii)|)osedly inferior Hobart eleven 
statistics proving that the game was as 
even as the score indicated, neither side 
gaining marked superiority in any depart- 
ment. at Middletown and Sche- 
lUH^tady close battles were waged, a 
blocked kick jjroviding the scoring oppor- 
tunity in the latter battle, while neither 
the Cardinals nor the Coastj Guard scored.

Prospects for a better than average sea-

has been holding informal practices on Cole

cial session untier Coach Tony Plansky on 

The loss through graduation of Ca])tain 
Dave Gregory and Buil Chai)raan, con- 
sistent leaders on last year's stellar outfit 
will |)i-obahly mean the dill'erence of an e,\- 
cellent squad and an average one, as Coach 
Plansky feels that his team will not develop 
winners, but will shape into a well bal- 
anced grou)), capable of finishing fairly 
ch)se together, all candidates being on a 
fairly even jilane. 

Returning from last year are Cai)tain 
Art Stanwood, Bill Collens, Don Brown, 
and Ken Rood, ably hoist ered by ,lini 
Gregory, ,)ohnny Marshall, Louis Brooks, 
and Bay Kiliaiii from last year's yearling 

The five meet schedule, including the 
triangular contest with Wesleyan and Am- 
herst and dual meets with Vermont, Mid- 
dlebury, and Union is a stiff one, says 
Coach Plansky, especially in the case of 
the latter colleges who emphasize cross- 
coimtry in the fall season, and whom the 
Purple was able to defeat, last fall only 
through the top-nolch ijcrformances of 
Gregoiy and Chapman. 

Speakers Are Scientific Leaders 

Physics is represented in the symi)Osium 
by Dr. Slater who has won recognition 
with his work in develo|)ing a niechanica of 
complex molecules \vhi(Oi has greatly aided 
researchers in structural chemistry. The 
third speaker in the symposium, Dr. 
.Jennings, a member of the National 
Academy of Sciences, is a leader in the 
experimental study of genetics and the be- 
havior of lower organisms. 

A Williams graduate, Dr. Clark, is to 
preside over the symposium. Dr. Clark 
is a former president of the American 
Society of Biological Chemists, a former 
president of the Society of American 
Bacterioh)gists, and the author of many 
works such as The Determination of 
Ili/dmgen Ions, as well as a (jromincnt re- 
search scholar. 

In addition to Mr. Street, the other 
members of the Centenary Committee 
who have planned this symposium and the 
other features of the program are Quincy 
Bent '01 , W. Man.sfield Clark '07, Presi- 
dent Dennett, .Joseph 0. Eaton '95, 
Charles D. Mukeiieace '00, James B. 
Pratt '98, Sanford Rol)inson '90, Dwight

Delta Psi Wins 131 Points To 
Gain Intramural Athletic Cup 

As a result of late spring contests the 
Interfraternity Athletic Trophy, signify- 
ing all around supremacy in intramural 
competition, has been awarded to the 
Delta Psi fraternity, while Kappa Alpha 
and Delta Upsllon followed in second and 
third positions respectively. A first place 
in both touch football and baseball, totaled 
with a second in handball and a third in 
pinK pong gave the Delta Psi an aggregate 
total of 131 points, while Kappa Alpha, 
winning golf and skiing had 1 12 points. 

In addition to the above. Delta Ui)silon 
won a first in tennis, Chi Psi was victorious 
in liandball. Delta Upsilon won the swim-

The W. C. A. Bookstore recently under- 
took a thirty yard trek from one side of 
Spring Street to the other and for the 
first time took its stand within the walls 
of Jack Henderson's Williams Shop. 
The shift from the West to the East was 
brought by the public auction of Clint 
Vose's haberdashery and sport goods be- 
cause of financial reverses. 

Walter H. Fuchs and C. Donald Gates 
'37 are in charge of the new and improved 
Bookstore and, as in the past, have the 
S. A. C.'s financial support behind them. 
The Bookstore, in the opinion of H. 
Ijiwrence Thompson '37, President of the 
S.A.C., has been "a good operating busi- 
ness," and, it is believed, with the larger 
and more attractive quarters provided in 
the Langrock store, will do a bigger and 
better trade in old and new textbooks.

Open Season With the open season on 
freshmen coming into its 
own again and the buck fever gripping the 
various social groups, the brethren are 
industriously brushing off the shining 
raiments, strangle-holding the stiff collar, 
and polishing the Gargoyle pins to mirror- 
lustre. Oft-repeated tales become heavier 
with the evening dew as Camels give way 
to Spuds with occasional boners providing 
more cloth for the conversational rag.

fifty five-pound pails of assorted nuts are 

scheduled to slip by the yearling larynx- 
Though we could j^ive innumerable sta- 
tistics on the conversational repertoire sit- 
uation, we have sifted this year's favorites 
down to ( 1 ) the time George Rudnick had 
his own hat sold back to him for a 
quarter, (2) the two freshmeti at "a cer- 
tain House" who shook hands with each 
other upon leaving, (3) why every one 
should stay away from Bennington (one 
raconteur heading for the Hill the minute 
the last period was over), and (4) the 
"certain Junior", who, going around the 
dorms, remarked that the Greylock Ski 
run was "tough sledding". Und .so 

Flickers Jessie Matthews, of Evergreert 
fame, who flopped so badly in 
this country with the ridiculous First A 
Girl, Then A Boy, starts out on the come- 
back trail with her American fans with

Wednesday. Though we haven't seen 
it — we were in hondon this summer, and 
all they have there are Hollywood films, 
of course — we hear the British-Gaumont 
candidate for Ginger Rogers' post has 
made a successul effort. Cal King has 
scheduled The Old Mill Pond— the best 
musical colored cartoon we've seen to 
date — for a revival on the same bill. 
It looks like old Cal is going to start the 
year right, in spite of the fact he's the most 
rabid Democrat of Spring Street . . . .

Professor Newhall Takes 
Stand for F. D. Roosevelt 

(Continued from First Pagei 

They are trying to pretend tlrnt there is 
a mystic sacrosanctity to tlie constitution, 
as interpreted by a majority of one in the 
Supreme Court, because they see in this a 
means of continuing something approxi- 
mating laissez-faire longer than would 
be the case if the Roosevelt policies could 
be curried out. They are wholly opposed 
to sucli experiments as TVA, and will 
scrap the latter if a Republican adminis- 
tration is elected. 1 regard TVA as one 
of the most desirable and promising of the 
Roosevelt experiments. 

I favor presidential leadership in the 
formulation of national policy. Both 
Roosevelts and Wilson provided this. 
The Republicans seem to prefer figure- 
heads to leaders, men like Harding or 
Coolidge. When Hoover tried to lead, 
his own party balked. The present Re- 
publican candidate is advertised as another 
Coolidge. I do not want presidents like 

GOP Campaign Termed 'Hodge-Podge' 

The present Republican campaign seems 
to be a hodge-podge of contradictions. 
It began as a denunciation of the New 
Deal, and then tried to look like the 
New Deal and to promise the same sort of 
a deal only better managed. This does 
not inspire confidence, particularly when 
it is clear that the hopes of Republican 
victory are based upon the idea that all the 
anti-Roosevelt, anti-New Deal sentiment 
can be captured by Landon. A promise 
to balance the budget without raising 
taxes or cutting relief sounds too much 
like Alice through the I.^)oking-Glass to be

Up Second Straight Year 

(Continued Irom First Page) 
Gifts to the College lire cited as tlie largest 
in five years. 

An increase of 110% in tlie amount of 
money contributed to the Alumni Fund as 
compared with the previous year is shown. 
The fund increased by more than $5,000.00. 
More scholarships have been added so that 
a total of almost $108,000.00 has been 
made available to undergraduates, 28% of 
whom were able to earn at least a part of 
their college expenses last year. 

Psychiatric Work Mentioned 

Appointment of fifteen new faculty 
members, and the promotion of seven was 
brought about during the past year. The 
Deans' Office is now considered to have 
been "placed on a structurally sound 
basis". Favorable comment on the dras- 
tic reorganization of the curriculum and 
institutions of Honors courses und Major 
examinations is made, and there is gratifi- 
cation in that modest scientific expeditions, 
famous in the time of Albert Hopkins, 
could be sent out during tlie summer. 

Mentioned also in connection with the 
faculty is the work of Dr. Austen F. Riggs, 
psychiatrist, whose first year of contact 
with students has prompted an increased 
interest in continuing his work at Williams 
this year. 

In regard to the cut system, the Presi- 
dent strongly indicates that the "Deans' 
Office 'crutch' should be knocked out from 
beneath undergraduates whom he feels 
should he given increased resixmsiliility 
during their four years at College. In a 
discussion of undergraduate problems, Dr. 
Dennett considers the success of voluntary 
daily chapel, which he writes last year 
'ministered to the needs of a very consid- 
erable proportion of the student body.' " 

Striking under the head of 1-ibrary came 
the notation that $14,400.00 liad been ex- 
jjended for the purchase of books. This is 
the largest sum sjMjnt for this purpose in 
the history of the college. 

"We are down to rock bottom. We are 
prepared to build," the report stated fol- 
lowing a discussion of the "painful" ex- 
perience of balancing the budget. A lucid 
explanation of needs, a problem with which 
a special trustee committee has now been 
actively investigating for several months, 
follows in the report. 

Faculty Termed Inadequate 

The size of the instruction staff was 
marked as being entirely inadequate and 
the pay too low . With the number of ap- 
plicants rapidly increasing the administra- 
tive staff was cited as being shorthanded 
and underpaid. There is also necessity of 
more classrooms and consequent abolition 
of late afternoon classes, and it is felt that 
smaller sections in conjunction with large 
lectures would help eliminate the alto-

gelher too higli scholastic mortality rate of 
past years. 

in a college designed to accommodate far 
less students than are at present enrolled, 
the need of larger scientific iaiioratory 
facilities was stressed: the ix)or situation 
of ail Art Museum which is not fire-proof; 
the impossibility of developing the study of 
music without a separate liuilding; the in- 
adequacy of the Faculty Club; the "inade- 
quate and crowded" quarters of tlie Gar- 
field Club; of the Health Center (Wild 
House); of the "temporary" Sage and Wil- 
liams Annexes; of the administration's 
quarters; of students activity quarters; 
the necessity of more indoor athletic facili- 
ties, i.e., squash courts. AH of these needs 
are vitally considered by Dr. Dennett in 
more definite terms than previously. 

The fraternity issue, of which a special 
trustee committee is now mailing a study, 
prompted the statement that due to the 
100% increased membership over the past 
tliirty years the "homogeneity and morale 
will ill the chapter have diminished. "Sug- 
gestion is made that by limiting delega- 
tions to a ratio of 60% of Fresliman classes

l)eai>ite the nonconunittal attitude of

ceed Professor Richard A. Newhall, on the 
Faculty Appointments Committee, it was 
announced yesterday. 

Consisting of three men, the commit t(!e

Church of Christ Begins 
Drive for New Members 

Improvement of College Religious 

Services Will Be Attempted 

At Fall Meeting 

Beginning a campaign for new members, 
unattempled in previous years, the Church 
of Christ of Williams College held a meet- 
ing for freshmen last Sunday morning 
after the opening Chapel exercises. .\t 
this time, a))proximately 150 freshmen 
have signified their intention of taking out 
associate membership, more than doubling 
the size of the group. 

Dr. Dennett, and .)ohn D. Iteeves. '37, 
president of the Williams Christian Asso- 
ciation addressed the assembly, emphasiz- 
ing the fact that the Church of Christ of 
Williams was a non-denominational or- 
ganization, which would in no way sujier- 
sede or interfere with any previous re- 
ligious connections. Its jmrpose is to 
l)rovi(le something for the students to tie 
up to during their four years at college, the 
only membershi]) requirement being a 
statement of belief in the teachings of 
,Iesus Christ as forming a proper guide for 

The church plans to hold .several meet- 
ings during the year, the first of which will 
come this fall, when the entire group will 
<liscuss possible improvements in both 
Sunday and daily Chapel services. 

Swimming Pool Receives New Diving Board, Special 
Equipment as Muir Announces Body Building Class 

by George C. 

".'swimming ie a sjiort which can be" 
learned in college and there is ample op- 
portunity for new men to get into Inter- 
collegiate competition, which is the case in 
few other sports " said Bob Muir, new 
mentor of the Williams swimming squad, 
»8 he showed a Record reporter the new 
equiimient which has been installed in the 
I'HscII Pool. 

Finding the fine spirit of the men with 
wliom he is working encouraging, Coach 
Muir anticipates a fair season for the 
•'urple tankmen. Though the material 
It present is not exceptional, the addition 
of last year's yearling team is expected to 
inject new life in the squad. 

Through the diligent efforts and coop- 
eration of Dr. Edwin A. Locke, Director 
of Health and Athletics, it has been made 
possible for many new and interesting de- 
vices for more effective coaching to be 
inBtalled in the swimming department. 
Among these are included a new diving 
board, perfected by Ernie Brandstein, 
Olympic diving coach in '24, '28, and '32, 
•Jjw kickboards, soon to b^ copyrighted by 
w. Muir, and a large mirror on the edge 
of the pool for individual practice. 

Using Danish exercises as the basis for 

e training which is given the classes in 
"ody building this fall, the system which 
^ "> practice at Yale, Harvard, and 

nnccton, is hoped to produce a looser- 
jomted squad. This section is also open 

Williams '39 

to any undergraduates interested. After 
an hour of such work each afternoon, the 
squad of thirty-four freshmen and ui)per- 
classmen sjjcnds another hour in the pool 
under the watchful eye of the coach. 

"Enough of the monkey is still in us to 
learn by watching," said Bob as he dove 
into the pool to give a short exhibition of 
the difference between the open and 
closed turns. Next, adjusting a halter 
around his waist, he gave the squad an 
idea of how the mirror is used. A rope, 
having a strong elastic in the middle and 
reaching halfway across the pool, holds the 
swimmer fairly stationary as he prac- 
tices the many different strokes. 

The Brandstein Interiuitional Diving 
Board has an adjustable fulcrum which 
compensates the spring of the board to the 
weight of the diver, while the new kick- 
boards are designed so that the swimmer 
is not only allow;ed to kick as strongly as 
possible without having his feet climb 
above the surface, but also, since there is 
no center in the board, he can practice 
breathing as well. 

For men who are afflicted with sinus 
trouble, and especially divers. Coach 
Muir has a nose clip which he perfected 
with the aid of Dr. E. B. Wyman of Bos- 
ton. Not only is this precaution being 
taken against winter colds, but also shoes 
and terry-cloth robes will be given the 
man to wear when they are not in the 
water. ,

'Alumni Review' Goes To 
Graduates Without Cost 

Decreased Revenue Necessitates 

Deletion of Editorials, Cuts, 

And Features 

Apparent disinterest in the affairs of 
Williams College by alumni in the classes 
from 1920 onward is to be met this year 
when (>500 copies of the Williams Alumni 
Review are distributed to all graduates 
free of charge. The experiment was con- 
sidered necessary in view of the fact that 
the very section of alumni whose interest 
should be cultivated and kept alive con 
stitutes the smallest percentage of the 
subscription list of the alumni publication. 

In order to meet the requirements of the 
reduced revenue, editorial comment, cuts, 
special articles, and four of the nine issues 
must be eliminated, although the publi- 
cation will still be flexible enough to ac- 
commodate announcements of the presi- 
dent, or by others on matters of active 
college mterest. The Alumni Notes, one 
of the sources of greatest interest to the 
previous subscribers, will be retained in 
the five issues which are to appear in 
October, December, February, May, and

100 Undergraduates Entered 
In Rockwood Cup Tournament 

The annual Rockwood tennis tourna- 
ment played every fall for the college 
championship will officially get under way 
this Saturday, weather permitting, with 
approximately one hundred undergradu- 
ates entered, the largest turn out since the 
tournament was inaugurated at Williams. 

Among the outstanding men entered are 
Al Jarvis, last year's winner and holder of 
the college title. Bare Kingman, captain- 
elect of the varsity. Bob Weller and Fred 
Gaskell, both regular mcmliers of the 1936 
team. In addition to Jarvis, I-ee Stetson, 
Warren Paine, Frank Caulk, Jim Bums, 
Dave Johnston, and Gay Collester from 
last year's yearling outfit will play in the 
tournament. , , , 

By Francis Boardman, Jr. 

.\notlier long step in the direction of in- 
creased undcrgradmue responsibility was 
taken last Tuesday when the Faculty 
voted adoi)tion of a new and more liberal 
cut 8y.stem for juniors and seniors which 
will be known as "indelerniinate". For 
the jmst two years the graduating classes 
have had "unlimited cuts" (m trial. The 
class of 193S, however, will lie the first 
junior class in sixty-eight years which has 
not been subject to ;i rigorous attendance 

Technically, the new system may not be 
spoken of as one of unlimited cuts. It is, 
rather, an elastic .system of attendance 
which indicates the end of dealing with 
students as a group and a spurring on of 
the currently noted trend of treating them 
as individuals. 

'First and Last' Rule Maintained 
.\ccording to the newly adojited jiro- 
posul, which goes into effect this morning, 
"the allowance of a definite number of 
al)sences to each student is discontinued." 
This statement, nullifies the consecutive 
cut rule, but (be present rule requiring at- 
tendance at the last class before a vacation 
:!nd the fir.';t c/ii-ss aftcrv.;ir<!.:, roi.Kiin.^ in 
elTect . 

There are two restrictions which can he 
imposed on ui)i)ei'cliis,snien. Firstly, an 
instructor has "the right to iwiuire tlie 
attendance of any student whenever an 
announced test is given, on penalty ol 
complete failure, or whenever his presence 
is necessary to the successful conduct of 
any phase of class-work." Secondly, tiie 
Dean, at his discretion, may impose such 
attendance reiiuirements as may seciii 
necessary, if it becomes apparent that an 
undergraduate is "impairing his college 
staiKling by excessive cutting." 

Cuts Under Revised Curriculum 
.•\m<mg reasons considered by the 
Faculty before it kicked away the old 
"Deans' Office crutch" was the increased 
respimsibility placed on students by the re- 
vised curriculum announced last .liuie. .At 
least half of each student's work in the last 
two years, it is thought, is directly prepara- 
tory for the major examination. It is held 
that "the necessities of the case will suffice 
to 'cad students to atten<l those classes 
where such attendance is manifestly de- 

A careful study of the rchition.slii]) be- 
tween class attendance and academic 
standing of memlicrs of the last three .sen- 
ior classes, had unlimited cuts, two of 
which was made and The 
general senior averages showed negligible 
variations. It was concluded lluit "heavy 
cutting was ai)parently no bar to imiimve- 

1936 Record 
One senior last .vear took 220 cuts (those 
taken for reasons for illness were at no 
time considered). His scholastic standing 
as compared to Junior year, showed very 
substantial improvement. The average 
number cuts taken by Dean's list men for 
1935-30 was thirty below that of those with 
an average of 2.7 (i.e. two Cs, three Ds) or 
less. The average numlier graduating 
with lumors for the past thr"e .vears has 
been approximately (he same. 

The Faculty's action proved correct at 
least one of the countless rumors which 
interested undergraduates have been dis- 
tributing about the campus. It also re- 
calls the four day sfrike by which Btuden(fl 
under Mark Hopkins in IHflS contendetl 
the cut system and seriously threatened 
the existence of Williams. The scarcely 
100 enrolled students of that time consid- 
ered compulsory attendance a "school boy 
method", and stood the introduction but 
one week before refusing to attend classes.

'l"he men of tlic faculty and administration who are responsible for 
I he new ruling as to cuts for Juniors and Seniors may have some doubts 
as to just bow well the innovation will work out, but, as to how the under- 
graduates in general will receive their work, they can have none what- 
soever. It is the stuff that student dreams are made of. 

The most far-seeing and thoughtful of the undergraduates will 
regard it, on the basis of the statistical report on "unlimited cuts" for 
Seniors, as a rather short chance to lake and one that the attitude of the 
average post-depression student thoroughly warrants taking — though 
they may entertain some qualms that the attitude of the average post- 
Dennett instructor, in turn, makes the new set-up a curse in 
Coping with the very variety of the attitudes taken by teachers may 
complicate the upperclassman's position; but perhaps it will not be long 
before all the instructors will have served a stretch in the Djan's Office 
and disciplinary theories become standardized. 

In its particulars the plan should be clearly understood, ,so as to 
facilitate its smooth and .successful operation. But in general, the with- 
drawal of definite cutting restrictions is in direct line with Williams' 
lat(Bt tendencies towards the unshackling of the undergraduates and 
towards the full realization of her unique capacities for treating them 

"Every man a dean" is now the watchword, in this figurative 
at least, that every member of the faculty now enjoys certain functions 
as a disciplinary officer and every Junior and Senior now must control his 
own conduct as regards class attendance. Although still something for 
the lower classes to strive for, it is now more nearly the case than ever 
that the two upper ones are to be regarded as innocent until proven 
guilty of the attitude that college classes are a necessary evil, rather than 
guilty until proven innocent. 


^riie four rushing seasons experienced by the Class of 1937 have 
been marked by as many different systems. Last year the general feeling 
was one of satisfaction at being on the right track; this year the senti- 
ment is even more enthusiastic. Doubtless there is room for modification 
in certain respects, but as a class we may take some pride in having 
perfected through trial and error a mechanism for this collegiate chore 
which can be passed on to future classes. 

It takes more than a good system, however, to explain the extra- 
ordinarily high percentage of first choices accepted, the even distribution 
of freshmen throughout the campus, and the complete absence of 
midnight trysts. The credit for this must be shared with the capable 
and efficient Arbiter and his staff, who exercised more than passive super- 
vision of the mechanism ; with the Undergraduate Council, the members 
of which showed an admirable spirit of cooperation with the Arbiter and 
with each other; and with the freshmen themselves, who dutifully found 
their way around the campus without getting lost. 

Finally, the whole campus is pleased with the part played by the 
Garfield Club. As a result of its effective rushing, a considerable nucleus 
of its delegation is composed of freshmen who joined in preference to 
membership in a Greek-letter fraternity. The other houses also appre- 
ciate the ungrudging way it permits a member to withdraw and join a 
fraternity if in the course of time he so desires. In the final analysis, the 
fraternity system at Williams is successful only as the Garfield Club is 

And so the curtain is drawn on what once was Hell Week, but now 
may be clas.sed as a not too sulphurous form of Purgatory.

'Alumni Review' Goes to 

Graduates Without Cost 

(Continued trom First Page) 
Tlices changes were decided upon at a 
meeting of the executive committee of the 
Society of the Alumni hehl at the Williams 
Club in New York. It was the feeling of 
the committee that the only way to keep 
the entire alumni body informed of what 
is going on on the campus, was to change 
the sul)scription basis of distributing the 
news magazine. 


Juniors and Seniors now on "no cuts" 
will continue so until the end of the period 
indicated in each case. 

This year the Alu7nni IHreclorij which 
is to be published in October, will be sent 
only to those alumni requesting a copy

WHEN the class of 1917 was at college, a long 
distance telephone call took (on the av(;rage) 
nior<; than ten minutes to be put through. 

This time has been whittled down gradually, so 
that now the connection is made in an average of 
1.4 nunnles — nine out of ten of them while you 
hold the line. 

But this is only one phase of the relentless effort 
to improve. Your service is heller today because 
voice transmission is clearer — interruptions and 
errors less frequent than 
ever before. 

America demands fast but 
sure telephone service — and 
gets it. 

College men and women

—The aacless Vacutnatic tcith 
Ever-Visible Ink Supply and 
102% More Ink Capacity than 
Mechanically Perfect 

Yes, other things being equal, 
style-minded people would choose the 
Parker Vacumatic for beauty alone! 
But other things, too, including per- 
formance, make this revolutionary in- 
vention the national favorite by a 
still bigger margin — by 9 to 4.** 

One important difference — its ink 
supply is ever visible— the ENTIRE 
length of the barrel. Thus it shows 
days ahead WHEN IT'S RUNNING 

Another great difference is the pat- 
ented Parker filler. There's no other 
like it. It requires no sliding piston 
immersed in ink — its working parts 
are sealed in the top WHERE INK 
can never deoompoae them.

Williams Faces Severe 

Test in Princeton Tilt 

(Continued from Pi»t Page) 

hot (or any opposition, but two green ends, 
Chubet and Rawlp, may find trouble in 
keeping up with the Purple's veteran 
wings, Phil Stearns and Tubby Kelsey. 
Princeton has not yet forgotten how close 
Eddie Stanley came to outeprinting them 
for a tying score last year, and it is a sure 
bet that the Orange and Black will again 
have its trouble with the fleet Purple will- 
o'-the-wisp. With Doug Steams calling 
the signals, and Fielding Simmons and 
Mike Latvis prepared to provide some 
surprises in the blocking and running de- 
partments of the game, Princeton has rea- 
son to fear the Purple backs as much as 
last year's formidable quartet. 

In the backfieid for Princeton will be 
three star veterans. Ken Sandback, Jack 
White, and Chick Kaufman, while Bill 
Lynch, sensational sophomore, is due to 
start at fullback for the Tigers in their 
opener. In addition to Eddie Stanley, 
Williams is planning to run the weak Tiger 
ends ragged with such fleet backs as Bill 
Stradley, Hank Stanton, Larry Durrell, 
and Pete Seay, while Tim King and Moon 
Duane will almost certainly see service in 
their respective quarterback and fullback 
positions. Purple line replacements in- 
clude Bob Buddington and Joe dePeyster, 
ends, Butch Stark and Ken Palmer, tackles, 
Tommy Green and Harry Harris, guards, 
and Ted Noehren, center. 

Saturday's contest will be featured by an 
invitation mile race, which will take place 
between the halves, featuring Jack Love- 
lock, New Zealander who won the 1500- 


p. 0. N. 


meter event at the Berlin Olympic Games, 
Glenn Cunningham, Archie San Romani, 
and Don Lash, of whom the first two men- 
tioned ran second and fourth behind I>ove- 
lock at Berlin. Ijovelock has announced 
that he would go "all out" to set a record 
in this meet of champions, and with the 
final 300-yard sprint he used with such 
effect at Berlin he is conceded a good 
chance to do so.

Play, 'Portrait of Mark 
Hopkins , Latest Addition 
To Centenary Week-End 

Mrs. W. B. Smith Wrote Drama to 

Be Given Saturday Evening 

In Gymnasium 

Program Will Begin on Friday Evening 
By General Convocation in Chapin Hall 

President Dennett Will Preside as 

Hocking and Browne Recall 

Williams' Glories 

By Austin Broadhurst '38 

Porlrail of Mark Hopkins, a play written 
Ijy Dorothy Hoskins (Mrs. Walter B. 
Smith) and directed by George C. Ebeling, 
Jr. '34 with William B. gprague '37, play- 
ing the title role of Mark Hopkins will be 
presented in Ijasell Gymnasium Saturday 
evening, as a feature of the Mark Hopkins 
Centenary, the Director of the Centenary, 
O. Dickinson Street '01, announced late 
last week. 

The Centenary officially opens Friday 
evening with a general convocation in 
Cliapin Hall over which President Dennett 
will preside as chairman. At this meeting 
Dr. Charles A. Browne, Supervisor of 
Chemical Research in the United States 
Department of Agriculture, and William 
Ernest Hocking, Ph.D., professor of phil- 
osophy at Harvard University and one of 
the foremost American exponents of ideal- 
ism, will speak. Professor Hocking is to 
lecture on the subject, "Philosophy and 
Religion One Hundred Years Ago", while 
Dr. Browne will talk on "Trends in Science 
at Williams College During the Time of 
Mark Hopkins". 

Miiny Altimni K.Tpected 

Over tlu'ee hundred alumni together 
with their families are expected to attend 
the festivities which continue Saturday 
morning with the symposia on science and 
philosophy. These are expected to bring 
to the canjpus an illustrious group of scien- 
tists and thinkers unequalled in the recent 
history of the college. 

The drama replaces a pageant depicting 
scenes from the life of Mark Hopkins 
which had been planned with Walter 
Hampden in the leading part but which 
had to be cancelled when Mr. Hampden 
decided early in September that he could 
not participate. After more than four 
months of research and writing, the present 
production was completed August 17, in 
which the author was much aided by a con- 
ference with Walter Prichard Eaton of the 
Yale Drama School. 

The play is dedicated to Miss Susan 
Hopkins, daughter of Mark Hopkins, who 
gave much valuable information and made

Williams Bandmen Entertain 

Football Crowd at Princeton 

Playing with a finesse which astounded 
even its most ardent supporters, the Wil- 
liams band made its first appearance of the 
year on a foreign field last Saturday, when 
it entertained the multitude of footl)all 
fans gathered in Palmer Stadium with 
skillful renditions of their whole repertoire 
of Williams airs and at the close of the 
game they burst into strains of Princeton 
tunes with creditable success. 

Remarkably chipper after their long bus 
ride from Williamstown, the band, al- 
though prevented from marching on the 
field at the half time because of the Invita- 
tion Mile Run, followed the baton wavings 
of Drum Major Robert M. Surdam from 
their seats in the stands and succeeded in 
arousing some little enthusiasm from the 
Williams section, which remained strangely 
lifeless until Simmons finally tallied for the 
Purple. From then on it took advantage 
of every lull in the battle to burst into tune 
although at times it found itself competing 
with the stentorian tones of the announcer 
of the public address system who vied 
with them for the public's attention with 
World Series and football scores. 

Yearling Football Outlook 
Bright; Sixty-five Report 

Soccer Squad Unknown Quantity; 

Only Five Harriers Answer 

Plansky's Call 

Sixty-five Freshman football candidates 
have reported to Coach Bill Fowle on Cole 
Field for the long drills to be held prior to 
the opening game on Weston Field against 
the Middlebury Panthers on October 17. 
Indications point to a team much heavier 
and richer in reserve pnw«r than last year's 
yearling eleven which lost to both Little 
Three rivals after decisively turning back 
Middlebury and Union. 

Fowle will have little trouble in mould- 
ing two capable backfield units out of the 
wealth of material that has come to Wil- 
hams from some of last season's most suc- 
cessful preparatory and high school outfits, 
but he must work to develop a pair of good 
ends and reserves for the center of the line 
if the Ephmen are to rise from the Little 
Three cellar during the present campaign. 
Starting Combination Doubtful 

It is still too early to attempt to pro- 
phesy a possible starting combination, but 
Dud Head of Taft and Walt Mitchell of 
Mercersburg appear to be good guesses for 
one of the guard and tackle positions re- 
spectively, while Paul Kinney, Bob Spang, 
Tom Creede, and Pete McCarthy are 
among the promising backs. At end. 
Brad Wood of Exeter and Rhodes Bucklin 
of Chicago Latin have showed up well in

McLaren Supports Landon Despite Farm Stand 

As Man Who Will Put 'Realism'' Into Government 

•;;;'":,:•■ By Walter Wallace McLaren 

William Brough Profesaor of Economica 
1 intend to vote for Landon in the beIief*South whose only business has been to 

that he will give the country four years of 
realism in government. I am fed up 
with the Democrats and Roosevelt and 
this wholesale corruption masquerading 
as idealism. "There is a lot of ruin in a 
nation," said Adam Smith, and, I am 
tempted to add, "there is too much ruin 
here and now." I would like to see less of 
it instead of more. 

Presidents and parties are largely made 
by the complexion of the rings in which 
they flourish. The depression, which 
brought the Democrats and Roosevelt 
into office is a thing of the past, and we 
need economy and honesty in the near 
future to enable the people to get their 
feet back on the ground. To do this I feel 
that it is essential to have a Republican 

Need 'Tough Minded' President 
Not only so, we need a president who is 
tough minded. I brieve that is the kind 
of president Landon will be. He hag 
forked for his living like the rest of us. 
He knows the value of a dollar because he 
knows how difficult it is to make one. 
He will not be surrounded by a horde of 
Pfofessional office holders from the 

stay in office. 

There is little romance in the cosmic 
process, and there should be as little as 
possible in public policy. There is no 
avoiding reality either in personal or 
national affairs. A man would be a fool 
who brought up his able-bodied children 
in idleness. The same is true of the state. 
Roosevelt has handled the problems of 
unemployment and relief with almost total 
disregard of reality. 

Hits Federal Expenditures 

He has not tempered sympathy with 
justice, and his lieutenants have, like 
Pericles in Athens, recklessly squandered 
public money to gain the support of the 
voters. In all these matters it would 
satisfy me to have a return to that hard- 
headed independence which we think of 
as characteristic of Vermonters. 

The tariJf, foreign affairs, and money 
planks of the Republican platform do not 
depress me over much. They are better 
than their counterparts in 1928 or 1932. 
Both Democrats and Republicans believe 
in and practice the policy of protection. 
The reciprocal trade agreements of the 
present administration are at best a minor

Alfred G. Chapin, Great 
Benefactor of College, 
Dies in Montreal at 88 

Trustee Emeritus Gave Rare Book 

Collection, Auditorium; Won 

Political Fame 

Alfred Clark Chapin '69, trustee emeri- 
tus who donated gifts to Williams which 
are valued at four millions of dollars, died 
last Friday in Montreal at the age of 
eighty-eight. Funeral services were held 
Saturday at the Woodlawn Cemetery, 
New^ York. 

In good health until he suffered a heart 
attack on September 10 at his summer 
home in Murray Bay, P. Q., Mr. Chapin 
was returning to New York when stricken 
in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Montreal 
shortly before noon. He was the last 
surviving member of his class at Williatns. 
Mrs. Chapin, the former Charlotte Mon- 
tant, was with her husband to the end. 
Book Collection Started in 1915 

Chapin Hall, built in collegiate Georgian 
style and containing a four manual organ 
which is ranked as one of the finest instru- 
ments in the country, was given to the 
College by her eminent alumnus in 1911. 

Four years later, Mr. Chapin started the 
collection of rare books which he presented 
to his alma mater in 1923. He collected 
continually for eight years until there were 
9000 volumes in storage. At the time of 
his donation, the collection, which has 
since more than doubled in value, was 
prized at one milUon dollars. He has since 
contributed 2700 additional volumes. 
Among the more remarkable items in the 
collection are a copy of the Gospels written 
in the ninth century, the original of 
Dante's Divine Comedy, a copy of the first 
folio of Shakespeare's published in 1623, 
and the firi?t cnllectA'l pdi*ion of Chaii/!«r 
published in 1532. 

Had Outstanding Career 

In addition to these tangible gifts, Mr. 
Chapin also contributed freely to endow- 
ment funds, making the offering quietly so 
that it wae not generally known on the 
campus. Especially during the war, when 
college finances were threatened, did he 
help Williams. He served as trustee for 
eighteen years until 1935 when he resigned 
being granted the status of trustee emeri- 

Born in South Hadley, Mr. Chapin 

spent his early years in Keene, N. N. 

After graduating from Williams in '69 he 

studied at Harvard and was admitted to

Centenary Number «f 'Purple 
Cow' on Newsstands Saturday 

Williams' comic monthly, the Purple 
Cow, will make its first Fall appearance on 
all newsstands this Saturday in honor of the 
Mark Hopkins Centenary. It will feature 
a cover in gay color by Charles Krehbiel, 
'38, several original drawings by WiUiam 
Sprague, '37, as well as a continuation of 
most of the columns of last year. 

There will be a full page of pictures 
showing various stage settings of some of 
the plays put on by the Williamstown 
Summer Theatre during the recent season 
accompanied by an explanatory article by 
Sprague. A new column devoted entirely 
to movies is the other feature to make its 
appearance for the first time in the pages of 
the Purple Cow. 

In and Around the Barnyard, the calen- 
dar for Williams' going-on, will once more 
be run on page one, while this month's 
editorial endeavor is fittingly enough dedi- 
cated to the freshmen. Among the famil- 
iar landmarks of last year's publication 
that will not be missed in the 1936-1937 
issues are Ruminations, Radical Ratiocina^ 
tions, and Moosic, the latter column telling 
undergraduates where and how to buy 
their records, and conducted by Northrop 
Dawson, Jr. '37.

The last competition open to the 
class of 1939 for positions on the edi- 
torial board of Thb Williams Rbcord 
will begin this Thursday at 12.40 p. m. 
with a meeting in Jesup Hall, and will 
last tor six weeks. All prospective 
candidates are expected to Attend.

Powerful Princeton Team 
Conquers Williams by 27-7 

Great Tiger Line, Backs Are Too 

Much for Purple Squad; 

Simmons Scores 

By Douglas E. Johnston '38 

A mighty Princeton line, which yielded 
only thirty-seven yards all afternoon, and 
which ripped gaping holes in the Williams 
defenses for a hard-driving double-quartet 
of Nassau backs, tells the story of Sat- 
urday's game at Palmer Stadium, in which 
a scrappy but badly outclassed Purple 
team fell before the well-nigh irresistible 
Tigers by a score of 27-7. 

Never displaying the inspired play 
which would have been its only possible 
chance to duplicate the 14-7 battle of last 
year, the Royal Purple nevertheless gave a 
good account of itself in the face of over- 
whelming odds, and cUcked beautifully in 
the second period to show that the early 
Tigers scores had not taken all the sting 
out of the WiUiams offense. 

Scoring Pass Features Play 

Those members of the Williamstown 
"Stuve Ltttgue*' wliu" reveled ill the Pur- 
ple's great stand of a year ago will find 
many texts for future discussions in Sat- 
urday's ball game. Princeton and Wil- 
liams fans alike cheered the flawless exe- 
cution of a combination forward and lateral 
pass play, in which Eddie Stanley received 
a bullet pass from Fielding Simmons and 
then flipped it to Phil Steams, who ran to 
the Princeton seven-yard line, 44 yards 
from the line of scrimmage. Likewise the 
fake spinner play, which sent Simmons off 
right tackle for the lone Williams touch- 
down, brought forth frenzied applause 
from the large Williams contingent. 

The loudest cheers of the aftenioon, 
however, were reserved for the Princeton 
team, which functioned with deUberate 
thoroughness. Clicking off five and six 
yards at a clip on a bewildering variety of

Landon-Knox Supporters 
To Gather at Republican 
Student Meeting Tonight 

Undergraduates Who Are Against 

New Deal to Meet in Jesup 

Hall Auditorium 

J. C. Goodbody '37, Head of Organization 
Commillee, to Explain Absentee Voting 

G.O.P. Insignia Will Be Distributed, 

Campaign Strategy Planned 

At Conference 

By Joseph M. Bums '39 

That the Williams campus will not be 
free from the political furor and campaign 
activities that are holding the limelight 
throughout the country was indicated Sun- 
day when a group of Anti-New Deal under- 
graduates proclaimed a mass meeting for 
this evening, when those students opposed 
to the Roosevelt policies will be organized 
into an official Landon-Knox Club. 

First notice of the new political organi- 
zation was given Sunday afternoon when 
posters were distributed throughout the 
campus urging all "Republicans, Jefferson- 
ian Democrats, and Anti-New Dealers" to 
attend the meeting, which is scheduled to 
take place in Jesup Hall tonight at 7.30. 
After organization plans are discussed, 
absentee voting in forty-eight states will 
be explained, insignias of the Republican 
party will be distributed, and campaign 
plans will be summarized. 

According to John C. Goodbody '37, 
chairman of the organization committee 
who will preside tonight, the campus poli- 
tical group is officially connected with the 
Republican party. Contacts have been 
made with several members of the faculty 
horc, and it is hopod-thot the club will take 
an important part in a political debate to 
be held soon by the Hopkins Log. A 
Landon-KhoK Club has also recently been 
founded at Amherst College, where under- 
graduates are working with the college de- 
bating society to rouse college anti-New 
Deal sentiment. 

"I want to emphasize," Goodbody de- 
clared to a Record reporter after discuss- 
ing the plans of the anti-New Deal group, 
"that this is not merely a meeting of Re- 
publicans, but represents a coalition anti- 
Roosevelt group of independents and Jef- 
fersonian Democrats as well. We are an- 
ticipating an overwhelming Landon-Knox 
victory in the straw vote aft«r the open 
debate session this fall." Besides Good- 
body, members of the organizing commit- 
tee include Ballantine, Everdell, Hollinger, 
Thompson, '37, Moon '38, and Auer '39. 

Pamphlet by Dr. Milham Elaborates History Of 

Valuable Meteorological Reports for 125 Years 

The "oldest inhabitant" may continue*torians of early American life, for sys- 

to tell of coldest of winters and the hottest 
of summers in bygone Williamstown 
days, but the day of innocent listeners is 
over. A new and elaborate twenty-one 
page report on The History of Meteor- 
ology in WiUiams College is just off the 
press and the actual facts are at hand. 

Edited by Willis I. Milham, Field Me- 
morial Professor of Astronomy, the report 
includes nine tables of striking figures on 
temperature, precipitation and other data 
from continued observations commenced 
in WilHamstown 125 years ago. Of at 
least equal interest is the history of 
meteorology at Williams and its advance 
under four of her greatest professors. 
1816 Records Prove Valuable 

The Hopkins Observatory, oldest now 
extant in the Americas, plays an im- 
portant role in the development of the 
science. Dedicated on June 12, 1838, the 
structure resulted primarily from the 
efforts of Mark Hopkins's renowned 
brother, Albert, who performed much of 
the actual carpentry besides contributing 
funds from his meagre salary. The strug- 
gle for modern equipment is typified by 
"Prof Al's" question at that time, "Why 
should our grave friends smile at the idea 
of ordering three dozen new thermometers 
thus connecting with this building con- 
veniences to suit the purposes of a Metero- 
logical Association?" 

The College's records for the year of 
1816 have proven of great value to his- 

tematic observations of that famous 
"year without a summer" were made in 
only eight other stations in the nation. 
It was the coldest summer from the com- 
ing of the American colonists and in Wil- 
liamstown that summer there were snow 
flakes on the mountains and liglit frosts 
every month. 

No Trend in Weather Conditions 

For the past twenty years the average 
number of cloudy days per year is 145 
and the number of clear days 105. The i. 
normal snowfall during that period is 
shown as 67.9 inches while in the winter 
of 1915-16 there were 119 inches. Least 
amount ever to fall here in 125 years is 
32 inches (1902). The yearly average 
rain fall is approximately 38 inches, 
although as much as 54 have fallen in a 
year. 22 is the normal number of days 
per year during wliich there were thunder- 
showers and 12 the number during which 
the temperature falls to zero or below. 

There is no trend of weather conditions 
over the past 125 years, according to Dr. 
Milham whose charts for the years 1816 
to 1838 and for 1916 to 1935 are in general 
very similar. 

The original observations from 1811 to 
1816 are missing although summaries 
were published in The Literary and 
Philosophical Repertory at Middlebury, 
Vt. It was Professor Chester Dewey, a 
"remarkable, versatile, gifted and in- '

The Record, as the only news- 
paper controlled by Williams under- 
graduates, has in the past with- 
held support of any political party. 
Although we strongly believe in po- 
litical activity, we also believe that 
to follow this precedent is the fair 
thing to do. We refuse, however, 
to turn our backs on the campaign 
and on other significant political 
developments. We are therefore 
inaugurating in this issue a column 
in which any member of the Edi- 
torial Board may insert a para- 
graph of anything short of libel. 
Our readers may rely on the func- 
tioning of the balance of power 
within the Board membership to 
see that all sides get a fair chance. 


The most magnificent athletic 
trophy in Lasell Gymnasium is an 
ornate cup presented by a group of 
loyal alumni a generation ago "for 
scoring against Yale." No one has 
yet offered the college a cup for 
scoring against Princeton for three 
successive years, but this accom 
plishment ranks high in the history 
of football at Williams. The ad- 
vantages and disadvantages of big- 
time football are too well known for 
the college to have any illusions in 
that direction. An annual game 
with a major eleven, however, is 
fine experience for the players, a 
convenience for metropolitan alum- 
ni, a big week-end for the under- 
graduates, and a great help to the 
athletic budget. If it proved noth- 
ir j.r •••st>. howed that the Williams 
bahii, 'v. . without its dinner, can 
ar k;-, :■ rch well and play well 
at the same time. Princeton is the 
perfect host for such an occasion, 
and we hope that the series, to be 
renewed in 1938, will offer many 
another spectacle such as that en- 
joyed by a crowd of 40,000 on Sat- 
urday in the Palmer Stadium. 

The long life of Alfred Clark 
Chapin '69 is a record of distin- 
guished accomplishment and con- 
tinual service. As a citizen, he 
realized that scorn of political ac- 
tivity is fruitless, and for years he 
worked through party politics in 
the interest of reform and eflBciency. 
As an alumnus, his generosity to 
the college was so great that the full 
extent of his benefactions is hard 
to calculate. In lean years, he 
knew as a Trustee just what was 
needed, and several times stepped in 
to balance the budget. The great 
assembly hall to which his name has 
been given speaks for itself. The 
Chapin Collection of Rare Books 
is one of the college's proudest pos- 
sessions, and will take on increased 
importance as the years go by. 

It had been hoped that Mr. 
Chapin would be able to attend the 
celebration of the Centenary this 
week, as one of the few remaining 
alumni who were graduated during 
the actual presidency of Mark 
Hopkins. Our tribute to the great 
teacher takes on more meaning 
when we can think of him in terms 
of the now completed life of a stu- 
dent such as Alfred Clark Chapin. 


It is with the deepest sorrow that the 
Williams Chapter of Alpha Delta Phi 
records the imssiHK of n Uistinguished 
brother, Alfred Clark Clmpiii, on Friday, 
October 2, 1936 at the age of eighty-eight. 

His benefactions to his alma mater will 
cause him to be ever remembered by 
Williams men, and it is fitting that his 
cultural appreciation is permanently en- 
shrined in the beautiful hall and in the 
priceless collection of books which are but 
two of his tangible gifts. Not only did 
Alfred Chapin give of his worldly goods 
but likewise did he unstintingly contribute 
his time and effort for the welfare of 
Williams — for eighteen years he served 
as a trustee of this College. 

Williams is proud, too, of his record as a 
statesman; among the numerous public 
offices which he occupied perhaps the most 
important were the Mayor's chair of 
Brooklyn and the Speakership of the New 
York State Assembly. 

To the surviving members of his family, 
the chapter extendsits sympathy for the loss 
of one who must have been so endless a 
source of pride and inspiration.

Conquers Williams by 27-7

bucks, spinners, end- and tackle-around 
plays and passes. Dean Hill, starting his 
first game in the shoes of Pepper Constable, 
gave an exhibition of line plunging strik- 
ingly similar to that of his illustrious 
predecessor, while Jack Daniels, Bill 
Lynch and Dick White, brilliant sopho- 
more carriers, kept up the blistering pace 
set by the veterans Ken Sandbach, Chick 
Kaufman, and Jack White. 

Princeton Tallies Twice 
Princeton's opening touchdown march 
of 60 yards, which featured the plunging of 
Hill, Jack White, and Kaufman, caught 
Williams off guard, and it was a bewildered 
Purple team that watched Kaufman cli- 
max the drive on an off tackle dash from 
the 13-yard line. Following Sandbach's 
successful kick for the point, it was again a 
matter of minutes before the Tigers 
launched another irresistible surge. 

In six plays Lynch and Daniel advanced 
the ball 55 yards to the Williams 25-yard 
mark. Fred Ritter then took the ball on a 
guard around play and lateralled it to 
Daniels, who carried to the 6-yard stripe. 
A great plunge by Dick White put the ball 
over from that point, and once again 
Sandbach's reliable right toe converted the 
extra point. 

Williams came back before the half to 
retaliate with a touchdown which proved 
that the sting had not left the Purple 
attack, Simmons going over and Bill 
Chapman addine the extra point. 
San Romani Runs 4.09 Mile 
The much-heralded invitation Mile Race 
took place between the halves, Archie 
San Romani going into the lead at the end 
of the first half and fighting off the bid of 
Jack Lovelock to lead the New Zealander 
and Glenn Cunningham to the tape in the 
fast time of 4.09. All chance of setting a 
new record was forfeited in the slow third 
lap, but the young Kansan's stirring 
finish brought a great roar of approval 
from the Palmer Stadium crowd. 

Giving the impression of pulling their 
punches in the second half, Princeton again 
scored in each quarter. Jack Hill and 
Chick Kaufman accounting for the two 
touchdowns, with Sandbach converting on 
the last touchdown after going wide on 
the third. The Purple defenses stiffened 
perceptibly in the last quarter, and turned 
back a fifth Tiger drive on the six-yard 
line, wiien Phil Steams intercepted a pass 
from Sandbach to Lynch. 

Late in the game Williams narrowly 
missed a second touchdown, when Eddie 
Stanley's long pass went inches above the 
reach of Phil Steams, who was in the 
clear on the goal line. While their main 
hope lay in the use of passes or wide 
sweeps around the weak Tiger ends, Wil- 
liams sent its speedy backs, Stanley and 
Bill Stradley, on line plays which were 
nearly always stopped dead by the Nas- 
sau forwards. 


i^RoundTh^ Board] 


Just as it looked as if the Williams un- 
dergraduate body was going to take a dis- 
interested attitude of passive interest as far 
as the forthcoming election was concerned, 
posters of a Republican Mass Meeting 
scheduled for tonight blossomed Sunday 
afternoon about the campus. And so 
with the appearance of James Roosevelt in 
town, and rumors rife as to forthcoming 
Democratic activity, as yet veiled in dark- 
ness, and the culminating Forum tri- 
party discussion, the Williams undergrad- 
uate will apparently be embroiled in a suc- 
cession of political demonstrations in the 
next month. 

Thie column, such as it is, is designed to 
furnish some comment upon the current 
political activity. Various members of 
the Board will contribute their opinions so

uates or townspeople will be welcomed in 
the usual columns. 

Perhaps the most interesting political 
development of the past week was "Al" 
Smith's declaration for Landon. This was 
not unexpected as the event had l)een fore- 
shadowed by the famous Liberty League 
speech last winter, but what was of interest 
was the manner in which the eventual 
declaration was made. 

What he had to say was not a clear 
analysis of the issues at stake such as he 
has produced in his best speeches, but 
rather an address which was a mingling of 
defense of his Liberty League talk and 
demonstration of personal bitterness. 

What the ultimate effect of the evening 
will be seems questionable. Smith has 
finally read himself ijito political death as 
far as his party is concerned. To us it 
appears that beyond that little was ac- 
complished. There may be a few who will 
turn as a result of the declaration, but 
most of Smith's followers have already 
turned, and political commentators judge 
that the remnant left on the fence is

Tiger lias been called the strongest for this

poor substitute for the frontal attack which 
was launched by the Wilson administra- 
tion in 1913. Proper sympathy with 
other nations in the solution of these 
problems the people of the United States 
are not likely to withhold. The money 
plank is innocuous. 

Deprecates Farm Plank 

The farm plank is the most serious 
stumbling block to one vs'ishing to vote 
for Landon, It looks as if both parties 
were losing their heads in a competition 
for farmer votes. Mr. Landon, however, 
has spent his life among the farmers of 
Kansas, and he knows how to discount the 
demands of organized groups. In an 
election year the discounting would be in- 
discreet before the polling took place. 
At any rate Landon has not joined the 
heretics who seem to believe that scarcity 
and high prices for foodstuffs make a na- 
tion prosperous. 

I am voting for Landon because I be- 
lieve that the country is likely to get from 
him an administration that will temper the 
sentimentality of Rooseveltism with real- 
ism both in domestic and foreign affairs.

Social Predicament In his Administra- 
tive Re|M)rt, hot off 
Sam McClcUand's local press, Dr. Dennett 
expresses quite clearly his theories in re- 
gard to the future ratio of fraternity and 
non-fraternity men. The 60-40 percent 
ratio is specified. The present one ia 
73.6% pledned to the various Houses, a 
slight increase over last year. 


p. O. N. 


The outcome of such a policy is so o\>- 
viouB that we wonder why no mention of 
it is included in the President's paper. The 
thought of a ratio of cn<:h class approxi- 
mating 40% l>elonKinK to a sinxle social 
unit — the Garfield Clul) — is unthinkable. 
There must he another unit created. 
I-oeal key-holers see this group in action 
within three years, 0|)eratinK under the 
name of the Mark Hopkins Clul). 

The advantages of such an innovation 
are many, chiefly along finaniiial lines and 
in reference to the question of personnel. 
Further, the Club would be sponsored by 
the Administration, and hence l)e another 
link in the rapidly-centralizing college 
system on this campus. 

There is, however, one impressive disad- 
vantage. Sooner or later one of these 
non-fraternity clubs would be distinctly 
inferior, and hence the social stigma in be- 
longing to the less influential unit would 
be considerable. It is our contention that 
— provided the Administration is sincere in 
opposing the present size of the individual 
Houses — there should be created one or 
more additional fraternities. There is, of 
course, grounds for contention in distin- 
guishing between the least influential frater-

nity (;u the campus, so that a severe social 
stigma for joining any House is virtually 

Further, such a fraternity could easily 
be created, in spite of Dr. Dennett's inti- 
mation that such an organization "might 
not find a congenial home" in Williams- 
town and m spite of well-known national 
fraternity red-tape. There are plenty of 
decently respectable Houses who will op- 
erate on the "shoestring" principle. The 
theory behind this is sound; pick any 
forty or so men from a college with as good 
material as Williams, and the chances arc 
that in a few years you may have at least a 
fair-ranking fraternity. 

We wonder if the special Trustee Com- 
mittee has this well in mind.

participate in absentee voting, and in-

state were given. "Meetings of this kind

Dr. Buehler Finds '^Variety and Evidence of Real 

Literary TalenV in October Number of '■Sketch' 

__:_ . . .'^ By Reginald G. Buehler • 

-\8aiHtant I'rofuasor in English 

The initial number of this year's Sfce;cfe"Black has a real flair for the choice of the 

contains several editonais, two political 
articles, two short stories, some poetry, 
and a one-act play — also a brief article on 
the imagist movement in modern poetry. 
The opening editorial speaks of certjiin 
changes in the format of the magazine em- 
bodied in this number, but your reviewer — 
having seen only page and galley proof— 
cannot, obviously, comment on these 

From a purely literary angle, the politi- 
cal articles are, of course, the least interest- 
ing. "Sunflowers and Sourgrapes," l)y 
James McG. Burns, is a plea for "a more 
penetrating and more realistic approach to 
the question of the New Deal versus Re- 
publicanism" than has been manifested, in 
the writer's judgment, by previous critics. 
Mr. Bums argues that Roosevelt deserves 
to be re-elected inasmuch as he has saved 
us from demagogy, enabled American 
democracy to vindicate itself, and supplied 
the necessary amount of government con- 
trol of business. The article is clear and 
well organized. Some of the Republican 
arguments are set forth briefly by John H. 
Stewart under the heading, "Sanity Re- 

Commends Article on Imagism 

Turning to the purely literary contribu- 
tions, one finds in "Gray Holiday", by R. 
C. Black, some excellent description ac- 
companying the narrative of a day spent in 
New York City by a college undergraduate 
who is sadly bored by his surroundings and 
yeama for 'the great open spaces. Mr. 

right word. "Waitress," bv Frederic 
Marston, is a short story of the melodra- 
matic type. It begins well and arouses 
real suspense in tlie reader's mind, but the 
ending is weak. 

L. H. J.'s "Imagism in Modern Poetry" 
contrasts the vague, but suggestive, type 
of image employed by poets of the Roman- 
tic Period with the "hard and clear" va- 
riety in which the Iinagists have special- 
ized. The writer concludes that whereas 
contemporary poets have attained admir- 
able clarity in individual images, they have 
failed to relate the latter to the body of 
their work and have based their imagery 
too often on a highly restricted body of 
experience, with tlic result that appro- 
priate emotional responses are not pro- 
duced in the reader. The subject of this 
article is one of primary importance to all 
who care about poetry, and one hope,i that 
the editor of Sketch will encourage this kind 
of contribution.

ber includes "Sweat of the Brow", by M.

Board Examinations, Fifty 

Are Alumni Sons 

That none of the 252 members of the 
class of 1940 took September College 
Entrance Board examinations, that 93.7% 
of these presented admission credits in 
Latin, and that 66.3% of this group are 
sons of college men were significant facts 
revealed in the report of Director of Ad- 
missions Charles R. Keller concerning the 
entrance of the present Freshman class 
to Williams. New York led the regis- 
tration by states with 86, followed by 
Massachusetts with 31 and New Jersey 
with 27. 

A constant decrease in the number of 
those accepted but who did not enter is 
evident in the figures of 37 for 1937 and 12 
for the present Freshman class. In spite 
of the large number of personal inter- 
views numbering 603 by Mr. Keller final 
letters of admission were sent from the 
administration offices on July 18, while 
preliminary arrangements for the in- 
coming class were completed by the first 
week in August. Three of the six who 
withdrew expect to be at Williams next 
fall, as compared with the 18 withdrawals 
and the admission of 36 after the first of

fourth president of the College, in the 
Mark Hopkins Centenary celelmition 
which marks the hundredth year since one 
of America's great educators began his 
thirty-six year term as leiidcr of this in- 

Since last April, the (leneral Cen-

by O. Dickinson Street '01, including Dr. 
Dennett and Charles D. Make|)eace '00, 
treasurer of the College, has been prepar-

which will present speakers of national 
and world renown in an im|)()sing tribute 
to the man selected for his i)ost largely 
through student agitation. In order that 
present-day undergraduates may join in 
paying homage to Dr. Hopkins, President 
Dennett announced that all classes will 
be suspended on Saturday and Monday 
mornings with the following statement: 
President Recommends Attendance 

"We are abandoning class exercises in 
order to make way for the Centenary pro- 
gram which has been designed to help the 
modern undergraduate to under.stund what 
America was like 100 years ago. Such an 
uniJerstanding we regard a very importiint 
piece of education, more imjiortant per- 
haps than any other single event in the 
college year, .attendance, therefore, while 
not re(|uired at the exercises of the Cen- 
tenary, is liighly recommended. If a miin 
wishes to be a loyal Williams graduate, 
there can be no better opimrtiinity than 
this to develop his respect and affection for 
Williams College. To .seize the oppor- 
tunity for a week-end off the cainiius would 
not be to di8|>lay a fine Williams spirit." 

Over 600 peo])le, including 200 alumni, 
200 undergraduates, and 200 represen- 
tatives from other Eastern colleges, are 
expected to attend the science symposium 
in Chapin Hall Saturday morning with a 
smaller number of guests from other in- 
stitutions anticipated at the philosophy 
meeting in Goodrich Hall at the same time. 
Large Crowd Expected 

Among the more than forty former stu- 
dents of Mark Hopkins who have arranged 
to return to the campus to celebrate this 
centenary is James G. Mason, '63, the 
second oldest living alumnus of the col- 
lege and the only living memlier of his

To the forty-four alumni who studied here under Mark Hopkins; we 
who know him chiefly through you have ample reason to honor him. 

To the other returning alumni; we are glad of the opportunity to show 
that the college today, in spite of, or perhaps because of, changes, is the 
living, growing institution of the past. 

To the guests from other colleges — philosophers, scientists, educators, 
and undergraduates; it is most fitting that you should join in our tribute 
to a teacher whose influence was nation-wide. 

To the undergraduates: this week-end offers an opportunity that 
rarely comes to a Williams student — either for three days of idleness, or 
for stimulating contact with some of the best minds in the country, 
focusing their scholarship on the state of science and thought today. 
Come to the symposia this morning, and your taste will be whetted for 
the rest of the program. 


The Russian note of last Wednesday, threatening to withdraw from 
the af^rc-inent for non-intervention in Spain unless Germany, Italy, and 
P'jiiiijiu' stop violating it in the interest of the rebels, is, from an inter- 
uatiouM! oint of view, one of the most significent developments in the 
Sjwin' .1; oiWI war. Soviet statesmen take particular pleasure in forcing 
the hands of governments which, for the sake of their own peace of mind, 
prefer to pass by on the other side of embarrassing facts. In this case, 
we may assume that the note is really directed not at Rome or Berlin, nor 
even at Portugal, where the rebels are getting the supplies which, with the 
aid of the German and Italian air forces, are turning the tide against the 
Spanish government. It is aimed at Great Britain, which traditionally 
has had almost paramount influence over the foreign policy of Portugal, 
and could effectively bring this violation of neutrality to a halt. In spite 
of the disgust of enlightened British opinion, the Downing Street poli- 
ticians apparently do not know their own minds well enough to act in 
their own interest. 

This goading from Moscow is to be welcomed, for, however great 
the evils of the continuation in power of the present Spanish regime of 
Azana and Caballero, we believe that the victory of the rebels would be an 
even greater disaster for Spain and for the world. In spite of efforts at 
winning the confidence of liberal opinion, the rebels stand for the con- 
tinuation in Spain of the medieval society which cost Spain her rank as a 
great power and led to the tyranny of the dying years of the monarchy. 
Our natural sympathy for the Church should not blind us to the fact that 
as an institution in Spain, it has stood squarely in the path of democracy 
and progress. Not until it has been separated from the state will it be 
able to fill its proper place in society. The hold of the great landholders 
over the peasant has not even the Church's superficial claim for our favor. 
In short, it is the French Revolution all over again. We feel that it 
is better for the pendulum to swing to the extreme left for a time — even 
for Spain to go through its 1793 if necessary, than for this necessary 
process of purging to be postponed once more. 

We await eagerly, therefore, the British response to this challenge. 
Unless prompt action is taken, the rebels are destined to triumph, and 
Britain's influence in Portugal will be completely undermined. Italy 
will have the ear of the reactionary Spanish government, and in all prob- 
ability, she will be able to fortify the Balearic Islands — the next stop in 
making the Mediterranean an Italian lake. Gibraltar will lose impor- 
tance except for the tourist trade. But most of all, we are concerned 
over the Spanish situation because victory for the rebels would mean 
another setback for democracy in a series of defeats which ultimately 
will have its effect on this side of the Atlantic.

The Death of Carroll Lewis Mazcy 

In the passing of Carroll Lewis Maxoy, 
for thirty-eight years a distinguished mem- 
ber of the Faculty of Williams College, 
that body feeb and desires to express its 
sense of a profound and four-fold loss. 

In the exercise of his executive and ad- 
ministrative functions, as Acting Chair- 
man of the Faculty, Dean of the College, 
Chairman of the Department of English, 
and member of the most important com- 
mittees, he revealed those qualities that 
distinguish the able administrator: energy, 
decision, firmness, courage, diplomacy, 
clearness of thought, and a scrupulous 

In his chosen field of study, he embodied 
the best traditions of that school of learn- 
ing upon which the foundations of Ameri- 
can college education were laid, and upon 
which they are still based. This tradition 
he clarified and illuminated, and, when 
occasion arose, defended with courage and 
conviction. To the literature of that tra- 
dition he added important contributions 
of his own. 

As a guide and teacher of young men, he 
stood in the foremost rank of the educators 
of his school. Rigid and exacting in his 
requirements, pursuing his way with tire- 
less effort, he brought to a difiicult task 
never-failing patience and contagious en- 
thusiasm. To these he added his genial 
humor and the human touch. At the end, 
there was no sign of the fading of these 

But only those who knew him as a friend 
knew the real man. His sympathy, bis 
tolerance, his capacity for friendship, liis 
unfailing sense of humor, endeared him to 
his colleagues and to successive generations 
of young men. 

Thus has gone from us a personality and 
a force that, for nearly forty years, left its 
mark upon the pattern and the process of 
education at Williams College, and 
touched the lives of men young and old. 
His monument endures in tjieir minds and 
in their hearts.

The Death of James Beebee Brinsmade 

In the untimely death of James Beebee 
Brinsmade, for seventeen years a member 
of the Faculty of Williams College, that 
body feels a sense of deep personal loss, 
and a keen regret that he hos not been 
spared to complete bis record of achieve- 

He approached the science of Physics 
with a wide and deep interest, a notable 
flexibility of mind, and a keen appreciation 
of the aesthetic values of the subject. He 
pursued his way with clear thought, follow- 
ing always a physical intuition that sharply 
differentiated mere tools from fundamental 
principles. In the phenomena of the 
physical world he searched for the truth 
that lies beyond. 

To his teaching he brought the same 
complete devotion to truth and the same 
exacting effort to discover it. It was this 
devotion that inspired interest in his stu- 
dents and confidence and loyalty among 
his fellow-teachers. To them all he was a 
symbol of the basic principle of all science 

the search for truth. 

Those who knew him as a friend will al- 
ways cherish the memory of his steadfast- 
ness, his generosity, his unfailing sym- 
pathy, his warm kindness, and his personal 
charm. These qualities of the cultured 
gentleman he revealed in all his relations, 
whether in the workshop or at the fireside. 

The sudden end of such a life brings with 
it a sense of loss that is profoundly felt by 
all who knew him, but especially by those 
who had the great privilege of being bis 
companions and fellow-explorers in his 
pilgrimage in search of Truth.

French Printer's Devices 
Picked for Chapin Exhibit 

Miss Osborne Praises Imagination, 

Artistry, of Works in Rare 

Book Collection 



( The following description of the first of the 
monthly exhibits in the Chapin Library of 
Rare Books was written for The Record 
through the courtesy of Miss Lticy Eugenia 
Osborne, Custodian of the collection.) 

The Chapin exhibit for October is the 
third ill the series of printer's devices. 
This 18 composed of early marks used by 
twenty-three printers in France, among 
these occurring such well known names as 
those of Estienne and Geofroy Tory. 

French devices are perhaps the most 
beautiful of all marks employed by printers 
or publishers, for they combine fertile 
imagination with fine artistry in a pecu- 
liarly spirited manner. They progressed 
from a simple shop sign to an intricate 
picture full of imagery, whether heraldic, 
legendary or purely fanciful. Yet never 
does one of these designs seem too full of 
detail, such was the skill with which they 
were drawn and executed. 

Danforth Geer, Formerly Alumni 
Trustee, Dies Thursday Morning 

Danforth Geer 79, Williams Alumni 
Trustee from 1921 to 1926, and otherwise 
prominent in the affairs of the college, died 
early yesterday as the result of a stroke, 
at his home in Hoosick Falls, N. Y. Mr. 
Geer was in his 78th year. 

Prominent in the affairs of the com- 
munity, Mr. Geer was at one time Presi- 
dent of the Walter A. Wood Lumber 
Company, which is the chief industry of 
Hoosick Falls. During the years of the 
war, he was chairman of the local Red 
Cross. Later, in 1919, he was elected 
Mayor of Hoosick Falls for two years. 

Mr. Geer is survived by a son, Danforth 
Geer, Jr. '11 and two daughters, Mrs. 
William L. Bradley, and Mary Geer. 

Tennis, Golf Tournaments Get 
Under Way with 101 Competing 

101 undergraduates entered the Rock- 
wood tennis tournament which began with 
the playing of the first round this week. 
Al Jarvis, Bare Kingman, Bob Weller, and 
Fred Gaskell, the first four seeded players, 
all drew byes to the second round, while 
Bruce Burnham, number three in the soph- 
omore ranking, advanced to the third 
round by defeating Charlie Giftos and 
Dick Sarkisian.'"^' 

The annual college golf tournament also 
got under way this week, the qualifying 
round ending Sunday. Qualifying scores 
consist of 36 holes with a score of 170 or 
better. Freshmen seem to dominate the 
field so far, with such players as Andy 
Andersen, Johnny Kerr, Butch Schriber, 
Wisconsin junior champion, and Ray 
Komdorfer, last year's Andover golf 
captain, turning in low cards.

in further honor of Mark Hopkins. This 
meeting will be introduced by an academic 
procession with former president Harry A. 
Garfiekl '85 serving as Grand Marshal. 
Monday noon the Centenary comes to a 
grand finale with a luncheon in Lasell 
Gymnasium in honor of the noted guests. 
John C. Jay '01, president of the Society of 
Alumni, will be chairman of this function

alumni, faculty, and friends who are ex- 
pected to attend. 

Dr. Tyler Dennett will preside at all 
three of the convocations in Chapin Hall. 
The speakers at the first, this evening, will 

strike the keynote for the whole week-end 
in their lectures which will depict the posi- 
tion of Mark Hopkins and of Williams dur- 
ing his time in regard to both philosophy 
and science. Dr. Hocking, one of Ameri- 
ca's foremost philosophictd idealists, will 
talk on "Philosophy and Religion One 
Hundred Years Ago," while Dr. Browne 
has for his subject "Trends in Science at 
Williams College during the Time of Mark 

Clark Heads Science Speakers 

Except for the Centenary luncheon, the 
most outstanding events as regards emi- 
nence of speakers will be the symposia 
Saturday morning. A Williams graduate, 
W. Mansfield Clark '07, Ph.D., DeLamar 
professor of physiological chemistry at 
.Johns Hopkins, will jireside at the science 
symposium which is expected to draw one 
of the largest crowds ever to attend a simi- 
lar event in Williams history. The gen- 
eral purpose of this session is to present 
topics which will "exemplify scientific 
thought of the present day and illuminate 
the progress of scientific method already in 
operation in the days of Mark Hoi)kins." 

,Iohn C. Slater, Ph.D., jjrofessor of 
physics at the Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology, Irving l^angmuir, Ph.D., 1932 
Nobel Prize winner and associate director 
of the General Electric Company's re- 
search laboratory, and Herbert S. Jen- 
nings, Ph.D., professor of zoology at the 
Johns Hopkins University, are the sched- 
uled lecturers for the science discussion. 
"Molecules and Solids" will be Dr. Slater's 
subject while Dr. Langmuir will discuss 
"Two Dimensional Liquids and Solids" 
and Dr. Jennings will talk on "Fundamen- 
tal Units in Biology". 

Sheldon Leads Philosophy Session 

Simultaneously with the science meet- 
ing, the philosophy symposium will take 
place in the new lecture room in Goodrich 
Hall. This session intends to show the 
"relations between science and religion at 
the present day and the development of the 
problems involved since the days of Mark 
Hopkins." Wilmon H. Sheldon, Ph.D., 
professor of philosophy at Yale University, 
will preside and will also take part in the 
discussion, talking on "The Bearing of 
Biology and Physics on Liberal Religion." 

Ill addition to his commemoratory ad- 
dress this evening, Dr. Hocking will also 
speak at the symposium on the subject 
"The Bearing of the Sciences of Man on 
Liberal Religion." Rufus M. Jones, D.D., 
professor of philosophy at Haverford Col- 
lege, is to continue the round table with a 
discourse on "Do Science and History Indi- 
cate Human Progress?" while the conclud- 
ing speaker will be Sterling P. Lamprecht, 
Ph.D., professor of philosophy at Amherst, 
who is to talk on "Changes in Religious Be- 
lief due to the Influence of Recent Science." 

"The philosophy symposium on Satur- 
day morning," Professor James B. Pratt, 
chairman of the committee which has ar- 
ranged it, declared, "is designed to supple-

Religion A Hundred ^ears Ago'. The 
four leading speakers at the sym|)osium 
will bring to our own day the relations 
between science and philosophy on the one 
hand, and liberal education on the other." 
Speakers Carefully Chosen 

"No subject was dearer to Mark Hop- 
kins than this, and none seemed to him 
more important. He made his own consid- 
erable contribution to it a century ago. 
Since his time much water has flowed 
under our bridges. Unguessed changes 
have come about in physics, biology, the 
sciences of Man and Society, in ethics, and 
equally great ones in the jiosition main- 
tained by liberal religion. 

"The speakers who will deal with these 
matters at the Saturday symposium have 
been carefully chosen because they are 
leading experts in the fields which they will 
represent, and it ivill be their aim to give as 
full account as the time will ijermit to 
present relations between these important 
spiritual forces. No theme could be more 
significant in the life of our day, or more in 
the spirit of Mark Hopkins."

Six College Presidents to Speak 

Among the eight who will speak at the 
Centenary Luncheon Monday noon are six 
college i)residents. James Rowland An- 
gell, ))resident of Yale University, will 
share the rostrum with Lotus Delta Coff- 
man, president of the University of Minne- 
sota, Karl Taylor Compton, president of 
the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 
Livingston Farrand, president of Cornell 
University, Fretlerick C. Ferry, president 
of Hamilton College, and Mildred Helen 
McXfee, new president of Wellesley Col- 
lege. In addition to these Newton Diehl 
Baker, former secretary of war, Harry

In addition to these feature events, the 
Centenary Committee luis arranged a com- 
prehensive series of exhibits which are 
located in Griffin Hall, the Hopkins Ob- 
servatory, oldest astronomical of a perma- 
nent nature in North America, Clark Hall, 
and Lawrence Hall. These exhibits por- 
tray the achievements of the professors 
and Williams men which put them in the 
forefront of scientific advance during the 
19th century. Included among the dis- 
plays in Griffin Hall is the (>ld library oftlie 
Student Societies, one of the few such left 
in America, and a showing in Lawrence 
Hall of portraits of famous Williams men. 

James Roosevelt Lauds Father's 
Record in Williamstown Address 

A short address lauding tlie recnid n\ 
the New Deal was given by James H.iusi.. 
velt, s<m of the President who is makiuKu 
political tour of Massachusetts, last M.m- 
day evening in the Williamstown lljjrli 
School at a Democratic forum at w I licli 
many of the state Democratic tickcl uiid 
several local candidates spoke. 

Introduced by Francis B. Sayre '37, 
grandson of Woodrow Wilson, Roosevelt 
discussed several New Deal measuras, 
stating that "the two greatest aci'mn. 
jilishments of my father are, first, he ki'|)t 
|)eople alive, and second, ho started the 
wheels of industry moving again." 'I'lic 
siwaker criticized Governor Lanihin for 
"coming East and promising economy, 
and then returning to the West to 
great farm aid". 

Answering questions after his .spcci'li 
Roosevelt declared that his father "ncil Iht 
approves nor disapproves of GoveniDr 
Curley." The speaker stated, howinor, 
that be himself, while he disapproveil nf 
some of the measures that Curley ■m\- 
vocated, thought that "he has done a 
great deal for the i)eople of Massachu- 
setts." Roosevelt also expressetl ap- 
l>roval of the Teacher's Oath Bill, in its 
application to public schools. 

Thirteen committees, comprising over 
eighty Williams men and friends of \\ il- 
liams, under the sui)ervision of the general 
centenary committee hav^e prepared tlie 
program that for the next four days will 
memorialize what may well be called \\ il- 
liams' Golden Age.

Our Motto 



This Nasty Friday, October 9 — Whatever 
Politics else may be suid at this point 

about student interest in the 
ciiniiiiK election, no one could accuse this 
campus of over-enthusiasm. About the 
(iiily constructive step all fall was the 
Sketch poll which our literary-politicos 
circulated last week. The Sketch, always 
( MKcr to discover campus opinion on any- 
lliirig — not to infer they know what to do 
H hen they do get it — has at last nianaKed 
111 run a poll which proves somethiiiK. 
I list year most of us will remember the 
fracas about the German exchange-student 
.situation, which aroused the Sketch editors 
In such a fine state of fury they iinme- 
diaiely printed a poll which had nothing 
Id ilo with the situation at all; this season 
uc note with relief they have stumbled 
on the Truth. 

The results astounded no one; the 
l.aiidon victory is no credit to the newly 

organized anti-lloosevclt club nor any 
reflection on the cami>us Democratic 
henchmen. The most remarkable thing 
about the anti-New Dealers though, 
was their vigorous protest against the 
A<lministration when seated comfortably 
around the fraternity house board, as the 
ballots were distributed, and their remark- 
ably ajjathetic turn-out in Jesup the other 
night. The Braehead-Walden ticket is 
really on top. 

It looks very much as though the current 
campaign would simmer down to an (ex- 
change of banter in the future Hopkins 
liOg debate in the infamous manner of 
last spring, when the anti-Roosevelt fac- 
tion won by combining campus po| u'.arity 
with supeiior humor. Already the wafs 
are at work; as James Roosevelt walked 
into the High School auditorium the ct'ier 
night, a l.andonite "card" was on hand to 
present him with a sticker; another Re- 
publican rooter sabotaged Frank Sayre's 
car with anti-Administration placards; 
and, working on the tlieoiy that a good 
offense is the best defense, l.andon sup- 
porters already have their favorite \\ PA 
negligence stories' as the keystone point 
of their attack. 

We can't say much more for the Demo- 
prats, either. They have operated on the 
crirciple that good little Democrats should 
be seen but not heard which may be a good 
idea at that, keeping the Republican set- 
backs in mind. Their absentee voting 
instructions have been communicated 
either secretly or not at all, unless this 
hardy little band has developed a system 
of mental telepathy in the crisis. Heaven 
only knows what they're planning; with 
Michelson on the publicity angle it must 
be somethinj'-, thoughour campus newshawk 
will have to pull a publicity bombshell out 
of his hat to get the local lads blinking. 
Meanwhile, Professor Straw Allen is doing 
yeoman's work in the local Democratic 
headquarters on Spring Street. Our spy 
tells ui that the Rudnicks have as usual 
played both ends against the middle, and 
are renting another show window to the 
Rc|)ublicans when the De Pinna repre- 
sentative pulls out at three this after- 
noon. But we prophesy a common de- 
feat for both sides, on the strength of our 
own straw ballot. What's a little thing 
like a Presidential election to a good 
Williams man?

Williams To F ace Untried Haverford E levenJToday 

Visitors Boast Strong 
Backfield, Good Punter 

Latvis Shifted to End in Attempt 

To Strengthen Line; Duane 

To Play Full 

Williams will face its third teat of the 
current season at 2.30 this afternoon when 
Haverford invades Weston Field to open 
their 1936 program against the twice- 
tried Purple eleven. In an attempt to 
meet the Quakers with as strong a com- 
bination as possible, Coach Charlie Cald- 
well, has shifted Mike Latvis back to his 
old position at end, and has elected to fill 
the gap left at fullback by this change 
with Moon Duane, who has been doing a 
capable job of replacing at this spot all 

Though untried, the Scarlet and Black 
have been pointing for this encounter with 
the Ephmen since practice started early in 
September, and Coach Roy Randall has 
hopes of making a real battle out of the en- 
gagement Saturday. The Quakers will be 
outweighed and will lack the experience 
Williams has had, but they boast a strong 
backfield, a good punter, and two guards 
that would cause trouble for the best 
teams in the country. Their last year's 
record is promising if unimpressive. 
The Quakers managed to take four games 
on a difficult nine game schedule, in- 
cluding one from Williams' Little Three 
rival, Wesleyan, and strengthened by re- 
placements from a successful Freshman 
outfit, should improve this showing during 
the present campaign. 

Stark's Loss Is Handicap 

With Latvis again at end, however, 
Haverford must face a deadlier Williams 
team than has been in competition since 
Amherst fell before the Purple roller last 
November. The Ephmen will be handi- 
capped by the loss of Johnny Stark at 
tackle, who is out of the line-up for a 
week with a pulled muscle in his right side. 

A glance over the line-up will serve to 
show that Williams has very little to fear 
if those who start can finish the game. 
Next to Latvis on the right end will be 
Mike Tenney, the most improved player 
on the club since the start of the season, 
while .lohnny Jay has now enough varsity 
experience behind him to make him more 
than a match for either of the Quakers' 
highly touted guards. At center, of 
course, is the steady and dependable 
Danny Lewis, who can be counted on to 
play his usual sterling game in the middle 
of the line and still have enough left to do 
his job as captain. 

Starting from the other end, there are 
Phil Stearns, Bill Chapman, and Dick 
Colman, all veterans of last season's 
championship outfit who have learned to 
work together as a unit and should make 
the left aide of the forward wall nearly 
impregnable. The starting backfield is 
fast, and shifty, and Duane should be 
able to fill the shoes of the plunging Latvis 
adequately. The fate of the present 
edition of Caldwell's varsity, then, seems 
to depend on the niggedness of the re- 
serves. If the sophomores live up to 
early season promise, there should be little 
to keep the Purple from sweeping the 

Faculty Athletic Tickets 

For the purpose of clearing up an ap- 
parent misunderstanding on the part of 
certain members of the faculty, atten- 
tion is called to the note at the bottom 
of the Faculty Athletic Ticket, that the 
ticket is good for admission to the 
games only for the holder and members 
of his immediate family living in W il- 

In view of the privilege accorded to 
the faculty of purchasing these tickets 
at an extremely moderate price, and of 
the Federal Tax Law covering admis- 
sions, it is requested that the regula- 
tions be adhered to. 

The ticket takers at the games are in- 
structed to insist upon tickets being 
shown when admission is required and 
to refuse admission to all persons not 
covered by the tickets.

Purple Booters Open 1936 
Schedule Against Hamilton 

Sawyer Substituted for Stowell 

After Veteran Fullback 

Breaks Wrist 

Friday, October 9 — Concluding three 
weeks of intensive practice, the Williams 
soccer team journeyed to Hamilton to open 
its 1936 schedule this afternoon. Hard 
hit by the loss of Eldon Stowell, first string 
fullback, who suffered a broken wrist. 
Coach Bullock has moved Jack Sawyer, 
fullback on last year's Freshman team, up 
to the first team. 

Practice scrimmages against the second 
team have been featured by the work of the 
forward line, composed of three sopho- 
mores and two lettermen. Pete Gallagher 
and John Harris, of last year's yearl- 
ings, have proven themselves serious scor- 
ing threats by their accurate shots and ag- 
gressive play. 

Team is Shaken Up 

Howard Sheble seems to have the edge 
over the veteran Frank Foley for the right 
outside, while Frank Wallace, another 
sophomore, is now battling with Keen 
Butcher, a returning letterman, for the 
starting berth on the other outside posi- 
tion. Appearing once again on the team 
after a year's layoff, Farny Fowle, a letter- 
man of two seasons ago, has definitely 
clinched right inside by his clever play over 
Fred Van Eck, an untried sophomore. 

Leading the halfbacks is Turner Blake 
who dominates the play by his tremendous 
kicks and accurate passing, while Dave 
Close, who has been shifted from his old 
position at right inside to right half, is ap- 
parently sure of his place. George Hadley, 
stellar half of last year's Freshman team, 
completes the middle line. 

Captain Larkum, whose defense play 
has featured the scrimmages, will start left 
full, supported by Jack Sawyer. Frank 
Davis, hard-kicking junior, is available as 
a replacement. Dave Johnston, six feet 
two Sophomore goalie, has proven himself 
a capable substitute for Ed Sheehan, star 
of last year's team. 

Reserve strength for all positions is 


The MUe Those loyal followers of the 
At Princeton Royal Purple who were so 
lucky as to get down to 
Palmer Stadium last Saturday were 
treated to one of the finest mile races ever 
to take place since the distance has be- 
come such a feature in the track and field 
picture. The time was 4.09 more than 
three seconds away from the world's 
record but was remarkably fast when we 
stop to think that none of these men were 
entered in an important race since the 
games at Berlin and still managed to keep 
up such a blistering pace as to register the 
fourth speediest mile in history. There is 
no need for surprise at the victory of San 
Romani over Lovelock and Cunningham, 
who were expected to blanket the field in 
early figuring. Archie showed great clos- 
ing speed in the Olympics and many 
experts felt that only poor judgment kept 
him from winning the ISOO-meters. There 
were touches of tragedy in the result, 
however, since the event marked the pass- 
ing of the great Lovelock from active 
competition and also showed that Cunning- 
ham and Lash, who have thrilled many a 
gathering, have not long to remain in the 
top-flight span of milere. These men, 
along with the already-retired Bill Bon- 
thron, leave happy memories of countless 
triumphs and thrills. 

The Nickel The annual baseball 

World's Series classic has drawn to a 
close and has settled for 
a time, at least, the dispute as to the 
superiority of hitting strength over pitch- 
ing power. Bill Terry's master-minding 
fell far short of halting the holocaust of 
base-hits that rattled from the bludgeons 
of Joe McCarthy's fence-busting Yanks. 
The rise of the Giants to the National 
League pennant can be attributed only to 
the remarkable managerial ability of Mem- 
phis Bill. The series definitely showed 
that the losers will never get into the next 
league championship unless there is a 
complete overhauling of the infield, while 
the Ruppert Rifles have the power to 
straddle the American League for the next 
few seasons at least. McCarthy pulled no 
boner when he made the deal that sent the 
temperamental Ben Chapman to Wash- 
ington and brought Jakie Powell to the 
park that Ruth built. 

Bench's Grid This being the first week 
Guesswork of the annual gridiron 
contest, don't be too harsh 
if the column makes a few bad choices in 
the games to take place this Saturday.

strong due to the wealth of sophomores. 
George Frey, a junior, is ready to step in 
for George Hadley at any time, while Tony 
Menkel will undoubtedly see action at 
right half. Bob Surdam, converted from 
the forward line to second string goalie, has 
shown great promise in the scrimmages 
this week. 

Albert Nies Appointed to Help 
Fowle as Coach of 1940 Eleven 

Albert B. Nies, for eighteen years Super- 
visor of Physical Education and Intra- 
mural Athletics, and Varsity coach in soc- 
cer and lacrosse at Princeton University, 
has been appointed Assistant Coach of 
Freshman football at Williams for the 1936 
season, it was announced this week by 
Albert V. Osterhout, Graduate Manager of 
Athletics. In addition to his varsity work 
in the soccer and lacrosse departments, 
Nies coached the Tiger 150-pound eleven 
and was also Coach of Freshman basketball 
for seven seasons. 

A graduate of Springfield College, Nies 
first took a position as Supervisor of Play- 
grounds in Jacksonville, Florida where he 
stayed for two years before taking the head 
coaching post at the Keene, New Hamp- 
shire High School. While there, he was 
Varsity Coach of football, baseball and 
track, but left in 1916 when he was offered 
the position of Supervisor of Public Schools 
in Princeton, New Jersey. From 1918 to 
1919, Nies was Athletic Director at Camp 
Merritt in New Jersey and at Camp 
Humphries, Virginia, before going to 

Promise Shown by Large 
Freshman Football Squad 

Eleven Is Favored Over Middlebury 

Next Saturday; 35 Report 

For Soccer 

With only one more week in which to 
shape up for their fall* campaigns, the 
yearling football and soccer squads have 
been working feverishly on Cole field and 
even at this date both units appear to have 
either equal or more potentiality than 
their predecessors. The Freshman har- 
riers still lack quantity, having only a 
handful of candidates, and at such an early 
date it is impossible to determine whether 
they have the quality to carry them 
through a successful season. 

With the able guidance of Bill Fowle, as- 
sisted this year by a newcomer to Williams- 
town, Al Nies, former coach of the Prince- 
ton 150-pound outfit which last fall lost 
only one out of seven games, the 1940 
gridmen should in all probability turn out 
to be one of the best yearling teams to 
represent the Purple. The freshmen face 
Middlebury Saturday. 

35 Men Answer Soccer Call 

Although no definite assignments have 
been made by Coach Fowle, it is safe to 
guess that the backfield will be chosen 
from Paul Kinney, Bob Spang, Tom 
Creede, Pete McCarthy, Bob Cramer, Dan 
Dunn, Ted Borden, and Morg Batten, 
while the line posts will be divided between 
Dud Head, Ted Brooks, at tackle, John 
Howard, Moose Russell, in the center posi- 
tion, Tom Fitzgerald, Walt Mitchell, at 
guard, and Rhodes Bucklin, at one of the 

Over thirty-five men have answered the 
call for soccer, and under the coaching of 
Phil Bradley, member of last year's Fresh- 
man booters who is unable to take part in 
Varsity Play this year, and occasional help

Active Work on Proposed 
Ski Tow Begun This Week 

Outing Club Project to Be Under 

Direction of Jim Parker, 

Skiing Coach 

Work upon the proposed ski tow spou- 
sored by the WiUiams Outing Club wils be- 
gun this week on Sheep Hill under the di- 
rection of Jim Parker, coach of the ski 
team, who expects to have the i)r(iject 
completed by the end of the month. I'luns 
for the tow were first made last spring 
when the Outing Club suggested that Mr. 
Parker construct a ski tow for the ukp of 
Williams students similar to the oiu^ he 
built at Woodstock, Vt., a winter ago. 

"In actual construction," stated Mr. 
Parker, "the tow is an endless rope strclch- 
ing 800 or 900 feet up the slope of Slicep 
Hill. This is powered by a winch and a 15 
horse-power motor, the latest development 
in ski tow design. It travels at 10.5 miles 
per hour and will accommodate eight to ten 
people. The skier will have to grab h(iid 
of the rope itself, this having been ijroved 
the most efficient method since hamlles 
often become entangled in the machinciy." 

Will Encourage Skiing 

The actual location of the tow, wliicli is 
to the left of the larger ski jump Uimig 
west, will afford a larger skiing area, since 
it extends beyond the road on top of Sliccp 
Hill to Hill B, formerly inaccessible to be- 
ginning skiers. 

"The advent of a ski tow upon Sheep 
Hill will undoubtedly encourage skiinn iit 
Williams as much as 200%," asserted Mr. 
Parker, "since the actual physical effort of 
climbing a hill to get a good downhill run 
will be eliminated. Members of the ski 
team will be able to increase the length (if 
their practices, for the time taken in climb- 
ing the hill will be cut down tremoiid- 

Tickets Soon on Sale 

Tickets for the ski tow will soon bo on 
sale, at a cost of $6 00 per season for Out- 
ing Club members and $7.50 per season for 
non-members, while the daily fee will l)e 
$.50. This will include a total of approxi- 
mately 60 skiing days throughout the w in- 
ter. Neither Mr. Parker nor the Outing 
Club expect to clear any money on the tow, 
but only hope that it will pay for its op- 
erating expenses. The special price of 
$6.00 for a season ticket offered last spring 
was merely for the purpose of raisini? 
enough money to begin construction on tlie 
project and the sale of tickets was limited. 

Allen T. Clement, Jr., president of the 
Outing Club, expressed his firm approval 
of the tow, saying, "A ski tow on a hill 
with such excellent skiing facilities iis 
Sheep Hill will undoubtedly promote a 
great deal of interest in skiing among un- 
dergraduates, and while a few are opiioscd 
to a tow because it limits the amount of 
exercise to be obtained from climbing u|i- 
hill, as much leg muscle ib developed on 
the down-hill run." 

As a further inducement to winter sports 
enthusiasts A. Rosenberg, tlte owner of the 
land on which Sheep Hill is situated, is 
constructing a small cabin where skiers 
may find warmth and refreshments, mak- 
ing a complete unit of skiing facilities.

and reviews. 

When, in the last years of the nineteenth 
century, the modern era of higher educa- 
tion set in, bringing revolutionary changes 
in college curricula, the ampUfication of 
reading material required for courses, and 
the consequent expansion of college libra- 
ries, the student libraries began to lose 
their importance, and were gradually 
absorbed into the regular college libraries. 
Fortunately, however, tlie student library 
here was preserved intact and after being 
shifted from store room to store room was 
in 1926 finally located in Griffin Hall where 
this summer it has been cleaned and the 
books partially catalogued and arranged 
for display. 

Although without any great value as 
first or rare editions, the books in the li- 
brary are unique in that they present a 
graphic picture of undergraduate tastes in 
reading matter during the nineteenth cen- 
tury as well as a display of the book- 
binder's art durnig that period. Owner- 
ship of the collection now rests legally with 
the Adelphic Union, the successor of the 
Philologian and Philotechnician Societies, 
but plans are being made to transfer this 
ownership to the college so that the library 
may be permanently preserved. 

Student Societies, numbering over 7,500 
volumes and one of the few American col- 
lege student libraries still in existence, 
have been restored and reorganized this 
summer through the efforts of W. N. C. 
Carlton, College librarian, to form the 
foundation for the exhibits in Griffin Hall 
i)f Williams' former scholastic glories 
which will be a major feature of the Mark 
Hopkins Centenary celebration. 

In Dr. Carlton's ten-page report on his 
work of restoration, the history and im- 
))ortance of these collections are outlined. 
The two societies originated in the Adel- 
pliic Union Society, founded almost as soon 
lis the college itself. In 1795 the Society, 
whose membership embraced all the mem- 
bers of the college and a few of the more 
advanced students of the academy, had a 
library which numbered about 100 vol- 
umes, kept in a room on the fourth floor of 
West College. 

Early Union Divided 

So many new students entered Williams 
and tried to enter the Adelphic Union in 
1795, however, that a plan of division was 
formulated which resulted in the establish- 
ing of the Philologian and Philotechnician 
Societies which together were to form the 
Adelphic Union. These two organizations 
continued with their namet unchanged for 
many years, keeping up a constant and 
vigorous rivalry for rhetorical superiority 
and subject, of course, to alternate periods 
(if prosperity and decline. Mark Hopkins 
Has himself a member of tlie Philotech- 
nician Society and its president during his 
Senior year, 1823-24. 

In 1841 a major catastrophe in the exist- 
once of the library occurred when the entire 
northern end of East College, where the 
collection was then kept, caught on fire 
while the college body was in chapel. 
Valiant efforts by the students succeeded 
in saving most of the books and furniture 
l)elonging to the literary societies although 
tlic small theological library was entirely 
destroyed and the rooms used by the socie- 
ties as meeting and debating rooms were 
completely gutted as was mott of the 
liuilding's interior. 

Gave Way to College Libraries 

Supported entirely by the students, 
tliese libraries grew in size ar.d selection 
until in the decade 1850-60, the period of 
Kreatest prosperity and influence for the 
debating clubs and the middle years of 
Mark Hopkins' presidency, the Philotech- 
nician collection contained 4,410 volumes 
with 47 in French, 20 in Greek, 16 in Latin, 
and two in Tamil. The Philologian li- 
l)niry was somewhat larger, numbering 
4,300 volumes. About 220 volumes were 
added to these libraries annually while the 
students spent between $140 and $160 a 
year to pay for repairing old books and

excels in dialogue and situation. Mr. 
Moon's command of the cant, or argot, em- 
ployed by gangsters, coupled with his use 
of amusing situations, results in several 
uproarious episodes, in which such ill-as-

school, the maiden aunt of the heroine, and 
professional thugs are brought into juxta-

that the plot places a very considerable

Adelphic Union to Inaugurate 

Intra-College Debating Meets 

As a supplement to its regular inter- 
collegiate debating schedule the Adelphic 
Union has decided to inaugurate a series 
of intra-coUege contests, it was announced 
Thursday by Julius S. Glaser '37, president 
of the Union. The new scheme lias been 
adopted to provide speaking and debating 
experience for those men in the college 
who for various reasons, are unal)le to 
participate or try out for the regular inter- 
collegiate contests. 

The schedule for the coming season's 
inter-collegiate contests, which is also 
rapidly assuming definite form, has been 
drawn up to include a debate with Middle- 
bury early in November, and a contest 
with Union over radio station WGY 
on .January 7th. On future dates the 
Adelphic Union will continue its various 
series of meetings with Amherst, Wes- 
leyan, Bowdoin and various of the 
womens' colleges. 

While no definite subjects of debate 
have been drawn up as yet the attempt 
will he to make them as interesting as 
possible to the student type audience and 
will include topics of current events and 
present-day liappenings which are of gen- 
eral controversy.

There is one rather striking comimrigon 
in the recent Sketch poll when it is com- 
pared with the (mil which was taken at 
Williams precedinft the 1932 election 
which seems to us worthy of mention. 
This year 75.5% expressed preference for 
the Republican candidate as against 73% 
in 1932, 20% supiiorted the Democratic 
candidate with only 13.7'/o in 1932, while 
3.5'/c hacked Thomas as against 13.3% in 
the previous elec^tion. 

The Repuhlican gain is to l)e expected in 
a college such as this in a campaign such as 
this. But more important is — what has 
hapiK'ned to the Socialists? The Socialist 
party has generally been supported in col- 
lege intellectual circles by those who feel 
that it has something more constructive to 
offer than either of the principal parties. 
It appealed fundamentally to what may be 
classified as the young intelligentsia who 
saw apparently some hope in its program 
for a solution of what they considered 
wrong in the social order. Is it possible 
that the Democratic party has changed 
sufficiently in four years so that it draws 
the support of those who in 1932 saw noth- 
ing of benefit in its platform and who 
voted then primarily in protest against 
major party policies? 

This column is not designed to furnish 
answers to questions such as these, but 
rather to introduce ideas into the under- 
graduate mind that perhaps may start 
discussion. It seems to us that this is an 
idea to think about. Has the Socialist 
party lost its following elsewhere as it 
seems to have lost it at Williams? If so is 
it because of the New Deal? In the 
answer to this, we feel, will lie the answer 
to the question, ever more recurrent, of 
whether America is undergoing a funda- 
mental ixjlitical realignment. 

The Curley regime lius given Massa- 
chusetts the worst administration in its 
history. Someone has said that Curleyism 
is the New Deal with all its faults and none 
of its virtues. A great many New Dealers 
admit that this is true. 

Will Roosevelt repudiate an administra- 
tion that is making the New Deal so un- 
IK)pular in Massachusetts? Such a move 
might well constitute the deathblow to our 
beloved governor, since again he is at- 
tempting to pull himself into a ptiblic 
office (tills time the Senate) by hanging on 
the president's coattails. That there un- 
doubtedly will not be such a repudiation, 
however, was brought out last Monday 
night. Asked about his father's opinion of 
Mr. Curley, James Roosevelt, 8|>eaking in 
Williamstown.said that his father "neither 
approves or disapproves" of the governor. 
In fact, said James, it is none of his busi- 

Back in '34 and '35 young Roosevelt 
and Curley were very fast friends, but 
such keen political observers as Arthur 
Krock and Joseph Dineen (who wrote the 
famous Harpers' article on Curley) have 
noticed a growing coolness between the 
two. James says nothing in favor of 
Curley in his regular political sijeeches, de- 
voting all hie time to national measures. 
When asked [wint-blank last Monday 
about this reputed coolness, however, the 
President's son made it clear that in no 
way was he seeking to attack Mr. Curley. 
He admitted that he didn't agree with him 
in all cases, but he felt that he had done a 
lot for the people of Massachusetts. And 
he would make a good progressive senator. 

This is a good example of the strength of 
party ties, especially in an important elec- 
tion year. Party harmony must be pre- 
served. But that there is great enmity 
between President Roosevelt and Gover- 
nor Curley will be seen if they both gain 
the offices they are seeking. Dineen pre- 
dicts that in this event Curley will become 
the President's bitterest enemy in the

bert H. liicklider as candidates for a 
Rhodes scholarship will end Wednesday, 
according to Dr. Licklider, who is in 
charge of the Williams applications. At 
8.00 p. m. Wednesday evening there will be 
a meeting of all candidates at the Faculty 

Each Rhodes scholarship carries with it 
a 400-pound stipe id for each year of the 

two-year course at Oxford. The basis of 
selection is: (a) Literary and Scholastic 
ability an<l attainments; (b) Qualities of 
manhood, truth, courage, devotion to duty 
sympathy, kindliness, unselfishness, and 
fellowship; (c) B^xhibition of moral force 
of character and of instincts to lead and to 
take an interest in his schoolmates; (U) 
Physical vigor, as shown by interest in 
outdoor sports or in other ways. Four 
candidates will be chosen from the six New 
England states. Those desiring more in- 
formation should see the memorandum 
posted in Hopkins Hall or consult Dr.

Hocking and Browne Open 
Centenary With Lectures 

Dennett Presides over Chapin Hall 
Exercises Friday Evening; 
, '^700 Attend , 

Scientific achievemente of Williams men 
and professors and the situation in phil- 
osophy and religion in Mark Hopkins' 
time were the subjects of the lectures de- 
livered at the opening exercise of the Mark 
Hopkins Centenary by Dr. Charles A. 
Browne and Professor William E. Hocking 
outstanding in the fields of chemistry and 
philosophy respectively. The 700 alumni, 
friends, and members of the college body 
present in Chapin Hall Friday evening 
hoard President Dennett, who acted as 
clmirman for the meeting, characterize the 
week-end program as a "modest celebra- 
tion". -, -. , 

The theme of the Centenary is twofold, 
the president declared, both "American 
science especially as it appeared in Wil- 
liams and religion as it was brought to bear 
by the brothers Hopkins." In his lecture 
Dr. Browne, Supervisor of Chemical Re- 
search of the Unit«d States Department of 
Agriculture, emphasized the first of these 
topics in his speech on "Trends of Science 
at Wilhams in the, Time of Mark Hop- 
kins", enumerating the long list of illus- 
trious scientists who at one time or other 
during the jieriod of Mark HopKins were 
connected with Williams and took part in 
the emergence of modern science which 
took i)lace in that era. 

Lists Dewey, Eaton, Emmons 

Earliest of great Williams scientists of 
Hopkins' era, Dr. Browne said, was Ches- 
ter Dewey '06 who taught every branch of 
science included in the curriculum. An- 
other early giant meni ioned by the lecturer 
was Amos Eaton, after whom the "Eaton- 
ian era" in American geology was named. 
Another noted Williams geologist of whom 
Dr. Hrowne spoke was El)enezer Emmons 
'18, one of those who accompanied Albert 
Hopkins on his famous Nova Scotian expe- 
dition, the first such by any American col- 
lege. Emmons, a botanist as well as a 
geologist, made a world-renowed survey of 
the age of the Taconic range, the speaker 
remarked, his views finally being accepted. 

Albert Hopkins, brother of Mark, con- 
stnictor of the observatory, scientist, "man 
of God", Dr. Browne characterized as one 
who "saw a little farther beyond the hori- 
zon than other men." Other Williams 
scientists of this period whom the speaker 
discussed included the evolutionist John 
Thomas Gulick '59, Samuel Hubbard

Tyler Dennett Urges Recovery of 

Mark Hopkins' Principles of 

Character Building 

By Cadwallader Evans, III '38 

Forlrail of Mark Hopkins, a play liy 
Dorothy Hoskins was presented before a 
capacity audience in Chapin Hall Saturday 
evening by the Centenary Committee as 
part of the Mark Hopkins Anniversary 
celebration. William B. Sprague '37 
played the part of Hopkins in the series of 
seven episodes depicting the educator's 
character and activities over a period of 
sixty-six years. 

The opening scene was on a Virginia 
plantation, in the year 1820 in which 
Hopkins read the Bible to a group of ignor- 
ant negroes, thus demonstrating his kindli- 
ness and interest. At this time the educa- 
tor was a tutor in Virghiia as a yoilng man,' 
prior to his coming to Williams. 

Play Shows Hopkin's Character 

In the next scene the setting shifted to 
Williamstown, two years later, where 
Hopkins was a philosophy teacher. There- 
after the play was devoted to incidents 
demonstrating the character of Hopkins — 
his profound intelligence in general affairs, 
his clear thinking radical philosophy about 
the forces of good and evil in the every day 
world, his keen wit and power as a leader 
of men, and the great affection with which 
he was regarded by his students. 

The most amusing scene was the class- 
room sketch in which Hopkins outwits his 
students, who are trying to get out of recit- 
ing, and at the same time imbues them 
with the zeal and fire of his own personality

Monday, October 12 — Williams College 
paid high honor to nine famous Americans, 
five of them presidents of colleges and uni- 
versities, by conferring on each the degree 
of Doctor of Laws at the closing convoca- 
tion of the Mark Hopkins Centenary this 
morning. As Grand Marshal President 
Emeritus Harry A. Garfield '85, followed 
by thirty-nine other Mark Hopkins stu- 
dents, led a colorful academic procession to 
the Chapin Hall exercises which preceded 
a luncheon of 550 alumni and guests in the 
Lascll Gymnasium. 

Before awarding the honorary degrees 
President Tyler Dennett delivered the 
Centenary address in which he directed a 
comparison of colleges and college men 
over the hundred year interval which a 
distinguished group has come here to cele- 
brate. Citing the lasting educational 
qualities exemplified by Mark Hopkins 
"the harmonizer" and Albert Hopkins, 
"the fighter", he' urged that educators to- 
day recover' that ''^»i tmotiona! drive 
which bred civic sense and social re- 

Bentley Warren Presides 

College and university presidents to re- 
ceive degrees were James R. Angell, Yale 
University, Livingston Farrand, Cornell 
University, Lotus D. CoiTman, University 
of Minnesota, Mildred H. McAfee, Welles- 
ley College, and Karl T. Compton, Massa- 
chusetts Institute of Technology. Other 
recipients were James R. Garfield '85, son 
of the United States President James A. 
Garfield, former Secretary of the Interior, 
and brother of the President Emeritus of 
Williams, Newton D. Baker, noted states- 
man, Reverend Harry Emerson Fosdick, of 
the Riverside Church, New York City, and 
Rufus M. Jones, Professor Emeritus of 
Philosophy at Haverford College. 

Bentley W. Warren '85, senior trustee, 
presided over the Chapin Hall convocation 
making brief introductory remarks. At 
the Centenary luncheon, John C. Jay '01, 
President of the Society of Alumni, pre- 
sided, introducing, with the exception of 
Dr. Rufus Jones, the new degree recipients. 
Dr. Frederick C. Ferry '91, President of 
Hamilton College, who received an LL.D. 
here in 1917, also gave a short address 
during this concluding Centenary event. 
Stresses Self-Reliant Character 

The President spoke of the self-reUant 
character of men who entered Williams 100 
years ago. This quality was held by the 
Hopkins brothers when they entered, he 
said. "They had to be self-reliant men or 
perish. And they were resourceful . . . To- 
day in colleges we talk much of liberty. 
There was no need to talk of it then. It 
is the heritage of all self-made, self-reliant 
resourceful men. Why these young men 
were bathed in liberty from birth." 

"Mark this," he continued. "Ideas 
usually travel from the top down, not from 
the bottom up. It was so with the mater- 
ialism which is now everywhere so much 
deplored. It began in the colleges and the 
universities, and about the time that Mark 
Hopkins was laying down his burden. So 
also was it, I fear, with the disrespect for 
liberty which so prevails today. A gener- 
ation or more ago the colleges lost that love 
of liberty, and now the loss has traveled 
down to the village street." 

Dr. Dennett did not want his listeners to 
be "deceived about those good old days." 
He compared meanings of the entrance re- 
quirements, the examination systems, the 
significance of degrees, and the method of 
teaching then and now in outlining the e»-

Tablet Unveiled on Sunday At 

Birthplace of Mark Hopkins 

More than 300 people here commemor- 
ating the Centenary of Mark Hopkins' 
induction as President of Williams par- 
ticipated in a pilgrimage to the Cherry 
Cottage in Stockbridge, birthplace of the 
eminent educator. A bronze memorial 
tablet placed on a boulder in front of the 
cottage, was unveiled by Master Mark 
Hopkins V, age 6, with the assistance of 
Miss Susan Hopkins, both direct de- 
scendants of Williams' noted President. 

The half-hour ceremony was plain and 
simple. Reverend Albert R. Brown, 
Pastor of the First Congregational Church 
of Stockbridge, delivered the invocation 
and word of welcome, followed by Dr. 
Tyler Dennett who made a brief dedica- 
tory address commenting on the signifi-

The meeting, presided over by Henry

Educator Praised for Personality 

Before Audience of 400 at 


Three former students of Mark Hop- 
kins, including Harry A. Garfield '85, 
president-emeritus of Williams, Stephen 
B. L. Penrose '85, president-emeritus of 
Whitman College, and Dr. Henry \je- 
favour '83 delivered short talks on their 
personal recollections of Mark Hopkins 
at the convocation in Chapin Hall Sun- 
day evening over which President Dennett 
presided. About 400 attended the ses- 
sion, one of the features of the Mark 
Hopkins Centenary, which was featured 
by Professor James B. Pratt's address on 
"Mark Hopkins as a Philosopher". 

Rollo Ogden '77, editor-in-chief of the 
New York Times, who was to have been 
the fourth former student to speak, was 
unable to attend because of illness while 
the length of the program prevented the 
reading by the author of Walter Hard's 
poem on Mark Hopkins, written especially 
for the Centenary. The poem will be 
distributed later in printed form. 

Hopkins No Philosopher, Says Pratt 

"Mark Hopkins was a great president, 
a great preacher, and above ail a great 
teacher ... No one, so far as I know, 
has ever seriously claimed that he was a 
great philosopher," Professor Pratt de- 
clared at the beginning of his oration. 
The essential part of Dr. Hopkins' ethical 
doctrine lay in his belief that justifiable 
action was that which achieved the great- 
est good, the speaker then asserted. 

In his Law of Conditioning, Williams' 
great president revealed his theory of the 
nature of man. Dr. Pratt l>elieved. 
Man's mind according to Dr. Hopkins as 
expounded by Professor Pratt is composed 
of intellect, sensibility, and will of which 
will is the greatest, and the highest level 
of man's expression is in worship. Hop- 
kins' great philosophical controversy was 
with McCoah, president of Princeton, in 
which Dr. Pratt considered that the Wil- 
liams president came out on top. 

Dr. Garfield, first of the former students 
to speak, painted Hopkins as a great

Morula]), October i;2— The road to defi- 
nite, long range plans for the advancement 
of Williams was opened this morning when 
Dr. Tyler Dennett announced the be- 
quest of Samuel Ho])kiii8, cousin of the 
celebrated President Mark Hopkins, of 
gifts which total more than $2,400,000.00. 
The President also announced the donation 
of $100,000.00. to be used for tlie building 
of squash courts from Clark Williams '93, 
John P. Wilson '00, and Quincy Hent '01. 
Dr. Dennett told iilumni, students, and 
guests at the closing convocation of the 
Mark Hopkins Centenary in Chapin 
Hall that the Hopkins benefaction, which 
was given for the improvement of teach- 
ing at Williams, makes possible the launch- 
ing of a program for improving educational 
facilities here which will probably require 
the income from additional funds three 
times the size of the new gift. 

Immediate objects for which the sum 
will probably provide are a immbor of new 
faculty api)ointnients, some salary in- 
creases on the basis of merit in teaching, 
and the establishment of the faculty 
pension system on an economically soul 

Gift Culminates Studeat^Lgitation 
Detaile<l plans for the csSitruction of 
squash courts have not been made, 
although it is not impossible that work will 
be started before the end of the year. 
Twenty is probably the maximum number 
of courts that will be built; fifteen being a 
more likely figure. It is expected that the 
courts will be placed in the vicinity of the 
present cage and Iroard track, i«)ssibly 
in such a way that a winter sjKjrts cage 
could be added directly to the proposed 

The gift, of which the administration 
first learned Sunday evening, culminates 
a long standing student agitation. Last 
February undergraduates rallied in Chapin 
Hall, heard leading graduates in a free 
discussion on the need for an indoor hockey 
rink and cage with squash courts. Nearly 
$1,600.00 was voluntarily pledged by 
students towards such a project as tes- 
timony to alumni of their interest. Tlie 
need of squash courts was particularly 
stressed in this year's President's report 
and in the rejwrt of Dr. Eklwin A. Ixicke, 
head of the department of Health and 

The larger-sized faculty, now an 
immediately achieveable objective, points 
glaringly at the necessity for more class- 
rooms, library facilities, leaves of absence 
for research, pension funds, and to addi- 
tional administrative costs. The honors 
course system, put in effect for the first 
time this fall, also demands these in- 
creased facilities with its emphasis on 
individual instruction. As |X)inted out 
in the President's annual report, recently 
published, the enrollment of the college 
will remain at about 800. A great many 
accumulated needs such as a fire-proof 
art museum, a music building, adequate 
quarters for the Garfield and Faculty 
Clubs, the Health Center, a student activi- 
ties building, a dormitory that is not 
"temporary", were also suggested in the 

It is clear that the $2,400,000.00 gift 
to the College is regarded as having opened 
the way to new needs, since it requires the 
railing of additional funds for scholar- 
ships and eqtiipment, if the impetus it 
gives to life at Williams is to be felt all 
along the line. Since its formulation last

"I might even go so far as to say that the most favorable place for the 
education of youth is a campus on which there is always going on an in- 
tellectual row between strong, consecrated, men of good manners." 
In such a sentence from his Centenary Address does President Dennett 
shed still further light on motives and aims now so close to realization, 
seem to offer a modern counterpart if not a successor to James A. Gar- 
field's well-known idea of a college, and at the same time give new meaning 
to the Centenary celebration of the work of the subject of that famous 

In the first place, thanks to the unselfish and incessant labor of Mr. 
Street and his ardent cohorts, there have been most certainly collected to- 
gether here an eminent group of "strong, consecrated, men of good man- 
ners", even though the "row" may have turned out to be no more than a 
fond hope. So that, though there would seem to be nothing forward-look- 
ing about celebrating memories one hundred years old, we yet have 
had a glimpse of the, Williams of a dream of days to come, just as Mark 
Hopkins on one end of a log with a student on the other was the Williams 
of our dream of days gone by. 

In the second place, more fundamentally, the President's words point 
to the danger of such a personification of Williams as has been taking 
place, though the personification have the form of no less a personage 
than Mark Hopkins. They imply a challenge to Garfield's time-worn 
aphorism, by describing an institution in terms of many men instead of 
one man. And the same fault is to be found with the definition of 
institution given by another contemporary of President Hopkins, Ralph 
Waldo Emerson, that it is "the lengthened shadow of a man". 

Is Williams really just a log, a kind of museum piece, great because 
Mark Hopkins was great? If so her greatness is hardly her own. If she 
really is the "lengthened shadow" of her great president, we are indeed 
whistling in the dark of that shadow to celebrate the memory of the man 
who cast it while free institutions are being attacked the world over. 
If what Williams has of glory died with Mark Hopkins, a centenary cele- 
bration can no more expect to revive it than it can him. 

Rather it is our belief that Williams has long outgrown its distin- 
guished mentor just as he must have hoped it would. Let those who pin 
their hopes in men save their eulogies and phillipics for the living president 
of the College. But also let them remember that Dr. Dennett has put 
his hopes in an institution, whose future is to include his, not his future 
hers. A Williams that comprises "strong" men and requires of them 
simply that they be "consecrated" to Truth and "of good manners" is 
going to die hard, harder than one that is composed of one strong, con- 
secrated, man of good manners, such as Mark Hopkins most certaiiily 
was. If this be true, the time may come when Mark Hopkins will be re- 
membered as the President of Williams College instead of Williams being 
remembered as the college where Mark Hopkins taught. 


Nineteen thirty-six bids fair to be an annus mirabilis in the history 
of the college. The gift of 12,400,000.00 speaks for itself; it only remains 
to be noted that it is particularly fitting that the bequest of Hopkins, 
the great financier, is to be used specifically in the branch of college in 
which Hopkins, the great educator excelled, namely, instruction. The 
first and foremost of Williams needs has been met squarely. The en- 
thusiasm of the Faculty for this endowment fund will be matched by 
that of the undergraduates for the squash courts made possible through 
the generosity of Alumni Bent, Wilson, and Williams. 

Perhaps we are greedy in asking for more; perhaps our enthusiasm 
for the other needs of the college should be moderated by this success. 
Be that as it may, it is our hope that the effect of these donations will be to 
set an example for other loyal alumni and friends. A college can do much 
without money, but with adequate funds at its disposal it can perform 
an infinitely greater service.

May, a special trustee committee of six, 
headed by Mr. Bent has been preparing 
a report of what the College needs if it is 
to bring each part of its work up to the 
maximum level of efficiency. It is im- 
possible, until that report is complete, to 
give details of the monetary needs for 
various purposes. It was announced in 
May that upon the completion of the 
report, a conunittee of alumni would be 
enlisted for advice upon the ways and 
means of acting upon this report. 

Samuel Hopkins, a cotton mercliant and 
member of the New York Cotton Ex- 
change, died ,Iune 21st in New York City 
at the age of 83. He was not an alumnus 
of Williams or any other college, but was 
moved to make these large gift* to Wil- 
liams by the family connection with Mark 
Hopkins which he had treasured from 
boyhood. Mark's great-grandfather was 
Samuel's great-great-grandfather. After 
the death on the eve of the Civil War of 
his father who had migrated to Alabama, 
the family was forced to return to tIjB 
North and live with Connecticut relatfveil, 
As a boy, Samuel went to work in New 
York where he prospered. His inteirmt 
in Williams was maintained tibiefly 
through contacts with President Emeritus 
Harry A. Garfield and Willar^ E. Hoyt, 
former treasurer. A bachelor he looked 
upon Williams ae a natural place for his 


Williams received her first contribution 
from Samuel Hopkins many years ago 
in the form of income from a $536,000.00 
fund which he gave in memory of the Rev- 
erend Samuel Hopkins, the great-uncle of 
Mark and distant cousin of Samuel, whose 
Hopkintonian ' theory of theology still 
flourishes. Later gifts to the College, 
the income of which became available 
upon the death of Mr. Hopkins in June, 
total slightly over $2,400,000.00. Wil- 
liams is also ramed residuary legatee of his 
estate, but the amount of this sum is not 
yet established. The sum will not be com- 
parable to the gifts announced today. 

Clark Williams of Greenwich, Conn., 
served as a Williams Trustee for twenty- 
four years until 1935 when he became 
Trustee Emeritus. He has contributed to 
a number of Williams funds, his giftsoften 
unknown to the campus in general. It ie 
he who has made it possible for a number 
of faculty members each spring recess to 
vacation on his plantation in South 
Carolina. He is a former State Comp- 
troller of New York where he was also 
Superintendent of Banks. 

Quincy Bent, of Bethlehem, Pa., has 
been a Trustee since 1921. He is Vice- 
president of the Bethlehem Steel Com- 
pany and has also contributed to College 
funds, ,Iohn P. Wilson, of Chicago, was 
appointed Trustee a year ago. He is

firm, and director of several Chicago

sentials of charactier building. He felt 
that "the boys of that day brought to col- 
lege a larger stock of character than now." 
He cast no slurs on the present undergrad- 
uate who have, most of them, "been de- 
prived of the oppcjrtunities which their 
great grandfathers hid to build character." 
And added, "they hjiye not had, with some 
exceptions, to fight for what they enjoy." 

The speaker quoted from Mark Hop- 
kins' final baccalavB-eate addres.s in 1872 
in demonstrating (jhe religious attitude 
which he hoped colleges might inspire in 
students. "You ara never to forget that 
the best preparatiorj for heaven is in that 
character which willjfit you for the great- 
est usefulness on earih." 

In awarding the LL.D. degrees Dr. Den- 
nett made the follo«ing citations:

and into those of public service, exemplify-

foriiK'il t)y fatty iiciiIh hucIi as stearic acid 
between tlie faccH (if an aciueous solulioii 
and a liyilrocarboii aiieli as ordinary 
Ijctrolatuni. As a result of a technic 
evolved by liis colleague, Ur. Katharine 
Ulodgett, which enables the observer to 
determine the area occupied by a single 
molecule of an interfaciul film one molecule 
thick, Dr. l.aiiK'iHiir lias been able to study 
the remarkable effects which slixht chaiiKes 
in acidity or alknlinily or salts content of 
the underlyiiiK water produce in the 
rigidity of the film. 

Tlie effects on the lilm of small con- 
centrations of calcium, nuiKiieKiuni, po- 
tassium, and sodium salts, all of which 
are found in sea water and blood serum, 
were studied with especial care, Dr. 
Langmuir declared, because of the fact 
that "the iietmeability of the walls of the 
cells ami many other properties are enor- 
mously affected by the ratio of, the con- 
centrations of calcium and sodium salts in 
the surrounding medium." 

Film 'Similar' to Cell Wall ' 

"We find that in solutions which ap- 
proximate closely sea water in regard to 
acidity and alkalinity and have similar 
amounts of (li.s.solveil salts particularly iii- 
teiesting phenomena are observed," Dr. 
I.angmuir asserted. "Sodium and po- 
tassium salts greatly increasi^ the area per 
molecule and .so make the film gaseous; 
whereas cal<Mum and magnesium tend to 
bring this area down and make the films 

"Calcium and sodium thus have an an- 
tagonistic action on the properties of these 
films . . . We are led to believe, thus, that 
interfacial films formed between a hydro- 
carbon which contains .stearic acid and an 
imderlying acpieous solution have pro))- 
erties which are in many respects very 
similar to a cell wall." 

Advantage of Enlargement Gained 

"In these experiments we have the ad- 
vantage, however, that we can make this 
artificial cell cover a square foot if desired; 
we can study in detail properties which it 
would be very difficult to measure in a 
living cell. By quantitative studies we 
can derive fundamental laws that govern 
these changes in projierties. 

"We hope by following up this work we 
shall be able to establish some principles 
that will be of great use to the biologist in 
understanding the complicated depend- 
ence of living cells upon the composition 
of the surrounding medium," Dr. I.ang- 
muir concluded. 

Gene Differentiation Discussed 

The new conception of the importance 
of chromosomes, which. Dr. Jennings 
stated was first expounded by Dr. Dorothy 
Wrinch in an article in Proloplasma, paints 
them "as a structure constituted of two 
types of elements making a sort of warp 
and woof. The warp is a set of longi- 
tudinal filaments or bundles composed of 
'identical sequences of protein molecules 
in parallel'; the woof of a set of ring-like 
nucleic acid molecules surrounding the 
protein filaments and holding them to-

order of nature was unsound; that process 
is more real than bodies; that the Deity 
must be considered to be part of the pro- 
cess of nature rather than an external 
creator. Hut such a view of (iod cannot 
lie accepted by genuine religion." 

"The psychologist shows extraordinary 
capacity for forgetting himself," stated 
Harvard's Professor Hocking following his 
introduction by Professor Sheldon, the 
presiding officer. In his discussiim of the 
bearing of the sciences of man on liberal 
religion the noted jihilosopher indicated 
the difficulties of psychology, emplmsizing 
that it is a study of self, that there is no 
organism for perceiving the self, and that 
it is not a thing which is observed but 
which observes. Showing that man is 
more of a mystery to himself under the 
process of science. Dr. Hocking referred Id 
the Ian that "Ciivcri a certain stimulus, a 
certain result will follow." Hence the 
psychologist must kec]) the stimulus from 
himself, he declared. 

Jones Discusses Progress 

"There conies a time when the shadow- 
side of facts are impressive, when mar. is 
aware of the limitations of hiiiLself," he 
went on. "This happens when he begins 
to conceive a whole. Psychology of re- 
ligion jirobably will furnish the chief clues 
for the interpretation of the relaticmsoflhe 
dilTerences in religion one to another. . . . 
Psychology will make human nature better 

differentiations that give rise to the con- 
cei)tions of genes. At or between the cross 
rings of nucleic acid are regions of weak- 
ness, where the chromosome n'.ay easily 
be broken apart and recombined with the 
corresponding part of another chromo- 
.some; regions constiliite the ap- 
parent gene boundaries." 

Slater Illustrates Use of X-Ray 
"They make possible the interchange 
and recombination of genes or chromosome 
parts that occur in the formations of 
germ cells." The banded structure which 
this theory attributes to the chromosome 
Dr. Jennings stated, has been found in the 
study of large salivary chromosomes. 
Whether or not this theory is correct, 
genes are the structures which by their 
variations and combinations account for 
the mysteries of heridity, the speaker 

Dr. Slater discoursed on the application 
of theoretical principles to the study of the 
structures of molecules of solids, illus- 
trating his lecture with slides. One ex- 
ample given by the speaker of the ingenious 
way in which physicists have overcome the 
limits of their instruments was the use of 
X-Rays as a microscope to "see" the atom. 
Regular microscopes, the lecturer ex- 
plained, are unable to focus on any object 
smaller than the length of a light wave. 
Since atoms are considerably smaller than 
this limit, X-Rjiys, whose waves are short 
enough to catch the atom must be used to 
create the pattern formed in a microscope 
and mathematics must perform the part 
played by the lens in putting the pattern 
together into a comprehensible image. 
Dr. Slater said. After much tedious 
work in this field, i)liysicists have at last 
been able to create "pictures" of the ar- 
rangement of the atoms in the molecules

"We must enlarge the range of our en- 
vironment to let UB have faith in human 
progi-ess," declared Professor Rufus M. 
Jones of Httverford, discusBing the ques- 
tion, "Do Science and History indicate 
Human Progress?" In his enumeration of 
the causes of the change from optimism to 
doubt were the bankruptcy of ideals which 
collajised in the World War, the firmer 
grasp of the limits of ideas of evolution, 
world catastrophes which produce grouj) 
inferiority complex, uncertainties of the in- 
heritance theory, and the idea that evolu- 
tion must be confined to biological theo- 
ries. "Made as we are," he affirmed, "we 
shall never be satisfied with a lengthened 
Iieriod of survival." 

Religion and Science Lamprecht's Topic 
"1 am confident that there has been a 
[lerceptible gain in the annals of life," he 
continued, citing the advance in the story 
of genuine history marked by freeilom and 
caprice, the transformation of religious 
ideals in which dawning love cast out fear, 
and the working by inner guidaiuw and 

The pronouncement of biological, physi- 
cal, and literary scientists on disixited 
matters of fact as compared to the insist- 
ence of religious men on t he ultimate wort h 
of their cherished values was cited by Pro- 
fessor Lahiprecht, speaking on "Changes 
in Religious Belief ITue to the Influencp of 
Recent Science". 

"There is involved in this position a kind 
of divorcement lietweeii fact and value, 
the implications of which are not often 
realized," he continued. "Concurrently 
with this line of development and largely 
as a correlate of it there has been a stream 
of influence of religion upon scieime" 

Possibility of Conflict Remains 

Showing how the older scientific views 
"excluded human aspirations and human 
purposes from any sufficient part in the 
forces that govern events", Dr. bampredit 
stated that the abandonment of debate 
among scientists on mailers of fact and 
concentration of attention on human 
values "made religious forces effective in 
indicating at least one of the defects in this 

older scientific worldview Religion 

has always involved loyalty to some sort of 
absolute. With the abandonment by 
religious liberals of insistence upon matters 
of fact there has gone a heightened devo- 
tion to cherished values." 

"Thus there has come about a new 
alignment of intellectual forces," he went 
on. "Religious liberals who begin by 
facing all facts religiously can hardly con- 
flict with scientists. But religious leaders 
who exact religious values as absolute and 
final may well come into conflict with 
morals and art. Thus the direction of 
conflict has changed, but the possibility of 
conflict remains acute."

as Morley, the great physicist , Dr. Browne 
said. After the .slack period during and 
immediately following the Civil War, the 
first Williams scientist whom Dr. Bniwne 
mentioned was Waller Denisoii Brooks 'liH, 
worki authority on oysters. Student lab- 
oratory work at Williams, a landmark in 
scientific education, was introduced by 
Remseii in the presidency of Chadbounic, 
the spt^aker declared. 

Dr. Hocking, Professor of Philosophy at 
Harvard, emunerated the philosophical 
and religious trends in force in the period 
around 183(1 and discussed Mark Hopkins' 
reaction to them. This period Dr. Hock- 
ing pictured as essentially placid in phil- 
osophical thought, a sort of lull between 
storms. Freni'h materialism, one of (he 
philosophical influences of this period, was 
distrusted in America, Dr. Hocking as- 

Dr. Hopkins. Professor Hocking said, 
had little sympathy with (he naturalist in- 
terpretation of man and considered that 

transcendent alistn, es|«msed by Kniersdn 
(ended (o subs(i(ute the necessities df 
natural law for the free and personal rela- 
lions of the moral man to his Maker. 

Dr. Hocking showed the esHcntiul fea- 
ture of the Puritan religion (o be a distrust 
of levity as a means to ha|)piness and a 
conviction that (rue happiness of spirit 
could be achieved only by suppressing 
one's tendency to gaiety. "The great 
moments of the spiritual history of nmn- 
kind are in which as in the era we 
have been consich'riiig the great world 
appeared to man as both doineslic and

By Woodward B. Norton '39 

Charlie Caldwell's 193() footl)all machine 
with too much power for a small Haver- 
htrd eleven, shifted into hi^h on Saturday 
iifternoon to score thirty-nine points 
tiKainst the weary Quakers and down the 
visitors in a 4(i-0 rout, the largest score 
that a Purple eleven has comi)iled since 
I he 50-14 victory over Wesleyah in 1920 
Without the services of Eddie Stanley, the 
JDcal eleven was held to one touchdown in 
the opening half, hut with the return of 
the first team after the rest period the 
scoring avalanche commenced. 

Much credit for the fine Purple show- 
ing must be accorded Captain Daimy 
Lewis for the outstanding game he played 
and inspired throughout the second half 
surge, and to Hank Slingerland who either 
scored a touchdown or passed for one the 
first three times he was given the ball 
The strength shown by the whole reserve 
Bquad, which kept Williams on the 
offensive all during the afternoon, should 
encourage Caldwell, who faced a real prob- 
li'in in this dopoFtilMBt-b^ofA-the season 

Bill Stradley, playing against many of 
his former mates ftom Penn Charter, 
also turned in an Inspired game, his fre- 
quent sprints for long gains making the 
crowd forget their disappointment at not 
seeing Stanley. 
Haverford Tightens After Stradley's Run 

Some indication of what the final out- 
come would be was given on the opening 
pluy from scrimmage when Stradley went 
through Dick Jackson's tackle on a cut- 
back through the right side of the line for 
sixty-four yards and the first Purple score. 
The crowd of 2500 returning alumni and 
sitidents that braved threatening weather 
to witness the game then looked forward 
to a run-away, but after Moon Duane had 
converted for Williams on a placement, 
Haverford tightened, repeatedly stemming 
Purple drives into their own territory, 
twice within the twenty-yard mark. 

A faulty passing attack and a costly 
Williams fumble which was recovered for 
Haverford by Bruce Ambler on the 
Scarlet and Black's 22-yard stripe twice 
kept the Purple forces from crossing the 
Hiiverford goal line, while Val de Beausset 
lived up to pre-game dope by continually 
punting out of danger, once after the 
dogged Quaker line had held for downs on 
the Ifi-yard line just before the close of the period.

.^ ON THE 


Saturday's The Purple ground the Hav- 
Debacle crford team into the turf hist 
Saturday, but only after a 
bitter Hrst-half stand by the visitors that 
allowed only one tally, and that scored on 
the very first play of the game. After that 
romp by the speedy Bill Stradley on a per- 
fectly executed off-tackle play, the home 
team was actually outplayed by the small 
Quakers for the rest of the half. The losers 
were no heavier than a light high school 
club and made the Ephmen look like a 
lethargic bunch of brokendown checker 
players going through dummy scrimmage. 
Charley Caldwell must have given liis 
charges the business between the halves, 
since they came out and ran up 39 points 
during the next two periods, looking some- 
what like the team that they really are 
An encouraging note was injected since the 
sons of Eph dispelled the rumor that they 
are helpless without the services of Eddie 
Stanley, who did not get in the game at all 

A Well Every so-called expert 

Planned Upset and predictor, with the 
exception of Ted Husing 
who must have gotten a red-hot tip, said 
that Syracuse would smother Baldwin- 
W alliicc under an avalanche of touchdowns. 
W hen the Ohio team came out of the 
Orange's Archbold Stadium on the long 
end of a 19-7 score, the game was termed 
the big upset of tlie day. However, be- 
hind this result there stands a story of the 
utmost cleverness and ])hinning on the part 
of the Baldwin-Wallace athletic depart 

The president of the small IS'ethodist 
institution is a close friend of the recently- 
retired Chancellor Flint of Syracuse, who 
has since resigned to become a bisliop in 
the Methodist ministry. Two years ago, 
he persuaded Flint to find a j)lace for his 
school on the Onondaguans' schedule. He 
gave as a reason the fact that the guaran 
tetf would go a long way towards Imlstering 
his athletic budget. Once the game was 
booked, football fortunes at Baldwin- 
Wallace took a sharp upturn for some un- 
accountable and rather suspicious cause. 

Last year the team, which plays with 
freshmen in the Varsity line-up, riui away 
with the Ohio conference, becoming the 
high scorers of the nation. These so-called 
small-timers showed a strange adeptness 
at moving a footl)all across opposing goal-

Purple Booters Defeat 
Hamilton in Opener, 3-0 

Harris, Sheble, and Gallagher Each 

Score for Williams in Last 

Half Attack 

Abundant |X)wer and speed gave the 
Williams sociwr team a 3-0 victory over 
hard fighting l)ut inferior Hamilton in the 
opening game of the Ephmen's season, 
played Friday afternoon at Clinton. lOarly 
season lack of jmlish nullified much of the 
Purple strength. 

Unable to get used to the rough, uneven 
field and suffering from an obvious attack 
of stage fright, the Purple booters played a 

lines. Closer scrutiny revealed the fact 
that almost the whole starting eleven had 
played together through high school, and 
Ohio scholastic ball is on a very high plane.

near the end of the initial frame. Despite 
the lack of cooperation between the for-

Kelso Davis and Captain Gray burkuni in 
the fullback positions held the Hamilton 
team in check, warding olT many an attack,

Getting the jump on the Purple, the 
Buff and Hlue took the ball straight down

frequently blasted the Williams net, but 
could not score because of .lohnston's fine 
play at goal. Midway in the ])eriod the 
visitors l)egan to function with Gallagher, 
Harris, and Sheble barely missing a score 
on a well executed play, while the downhill 
slofje of the field accounting for the Purple's 

failure to tally on corner kicks. Although 
the half ended in a scoreless tie, the Eph- 
men showed delinile signs of improvement.

Williams Crushes Out- 
Manned Haverford Eleven 

(Coiittnued from Pllth Pase) 

The PennsylvaiiiHiis' only real ofTensive 
drive came late in the ()|)eiiinK liulf when 
Bruce Ambler intercepted one of Hank 
Stanton's passes ilee|) in his own territory 
and started for the distant Purple K"al. 
He was hit hard by Danny Lewis after a 
short gain and fumbled, but the ball was 
picked up by Chuck Holzer who advanced 
it another seven yards before beinn 
stopped. Dick Beeler, shifty Quaker 
freshman, chose this moment to take to the 
air, and cauKht Williams off guard, com- 
pletinn a twenty-three yard pass, Beeler 
to Captain Herb Taylor, to the 46-yard 
line, from where Holzer made first down a 
moment later around the Williams left end. 
Another pass, Heeler to Taylor was good 
for twelve yards and a second first down, 
and Beeler made four yards through the 
line as the half ended with the ball on 
the Purple 22-yard stripe. 

After the intermission, however, with the 
Haverford rooting section chanting "We 
want Stanley", the Ephmen came sudden- 
ly to life, and if there had been any doubt 
as to the outcome, it was gone in a minute 
as Williams flashed all its power against 
the tired Pennsylvanians to score twice 
in six plays from scrimmage. Stradley 
was stopped by Clarke Morian after a 
short gain, but Fielding Simmons then 
skirted the Haverford left end for thirty- 
one yards, and when Stradley had gained 
seven yards on two plays through the left 
side of the line, Simmons went over from 
the four-yard marker on a play through 
guard. Duane failed to convert, but 
when de Beausset was forced to kick out of 
danger after Lewis had stopped Holzer on 
the nineteen-yard line, Hank Slingerland 
completed a pass to Doug Stearns for the 
third touchdown; Bill Chapman con- 
verted from placement, and the race was 

Steams Punts Eighty Yards 

Here a flurry of successful passes again 

gained ground for the invaders against 

the Ephmen, but de Beausset was finally 

forced to punt to the Williams IG-yard 

stripe, from where Doug Stearns got olT a 
beautiful eighty-yard (juick kick on first 
down, putting the Mainliners once more 
back on their heels deep in their own 
territory. After attonipls to gain through 
the I'urple forwani wall huil failed, and 
a pass from Heeler to Taylor had fallen 
incomplete for the first time during the 
afternoon, Doug Stearns fell on Holder's 
fumble on the 2(>-yar<l line from where 
Slingerland scored on an end run a moment 
later. Immediately after Taylor had 
blocked Chapman's try for the extra 
point, Ted Noehren, substituting for 
Captain I^wis, recovered another Scarlet 
and Black funil>le, this time on tlie Haver- 
ford 38-yard marker, and on the first 
play of the final chapter, a forwaril pass 
from Slingerland to Mike Latvis, who 
played his first game at end since last 
season, put the ball over. 

Captain Ixiwis kicked off to Holzer and 
made the tackle himself on the 25-yard 
line, and after a few short gains by Haver- 
ford, including one for eight yards on a 
Fass play the Purple used all last year, 
iCwis intercepted a Quaker forward and 
raced to the five yard stripe where he was 
penalized fifteen yards for attempting 
to lateral after one knee had touched the 
ground. Simmons went oft right tackle 
for the score a mement later, however, 
and as the reserves came into the game, 
Lewis received a hand from the Haverford 
side of the field for the splendid game he 
had turned in.

Sell-Out Indicated For 
Hofmann Recital Which 
Opens Thompson Series 

Said to Be Greatest Master of 

Keyboard Now Performing 

Before Public 

Polish-American, Veteran of 45 Years 
Concert Flaying, Opens Season Tonight 

Downes States His Success Lies in 

Power to Recreate Wonder 

Of Masterpiece 

Preparations for the piano recital with 
wliich Josef Hofmann will inaugurate the 
latest Thompson Concert series next 
Fiiciay progressed rapidly this week with 
tlu; conclusion of a campus wide ticket 
drive. After a year in which the concerts 
enjoyed their greatest popularity, Jesse L. 
Boynton '38, treasurer of the under- 
graduate committee, announced that the 
response of students and neighboring 
patrons indicated a capacity audience for 
tlio Chapin Hall performance. 

Season tickets for the concert series sell 
at $5.00 for center section seats, and $4.00 
for side seats. Tickets for individual con- 
certs are $2.00 and $1.50 for center and 
side sections respectively, while unre- 
served seats may be had for $1.00 on the 
ninht of each concert. Tickets may be 
secured from Boynton, Box 306, Williams- 
town, or telephone 113. 

Noted tor 'Singing Tone' 

.Idfief Hofmann, a Polish-American 
witli forty-five years of concert experience, 
is generally conceded to be the greatest 
pianist now before the public, ranking with 
iKiiace Paderewski. He opens the coming 
season in his home city of Philadelphia to- 
night In a concert with the Philadelphia 
Symphony orchestra, after a short va- 
cation in Maine which followed his recent 
three continent concert tour. He is 
selicduled to play in Mexico during 
November after which he returns to the 
I'nited States for an extensive tour of the 
East and Middle West. 

Critics of leading newspapers on this and 
other continents have all used their finest 
superlatives in describing the technique 
anil effect produced at thousands of con- 
certs played by the pianist. Mr. Hof- 
mann rarely plays a modern composition, 
and seldom departs from the well known 
classics of piano composition. It is his 
continued ability to give these often 
played melodies a new, compelling mean- 
ins and a distinguished "singing" tone, 
wliich has earned him the highest praise. 

Why critics unfailingly find themselves 

on the voyage of discovery when Hofmann 

Iilays is explained by Olin Downes, of the 

New York Times, who writes, "The

Athletic Council Head Tuesday 

Stanley P. Benton '10, of Pittsfield, was 
re.«lected to the presidency of the Athletic 
Council of Williams College at a meeting of 
that body on Tuesday evening in Jesup 
Hall. At the same time, Albert V. Oster- 
hout '06, Graduate Manager of Athletics, 
was made Vice President, while William C. 
Fowle '32, Freshman coach, was named 
Secretary, all officers being re-elected. 

An Executive Committee, made up of 
Mr. Osterhout, Mr. Fowle, and William 
Rahill '37, was appointed to speak for the 
Council. At the meeting, it was suggested 
that the undergraduate body should be re- 
minded of those making up the Council so 
that tliey might know where to direct com- 
plaints or commendations. 

The undergraduate members are A.

Story of Chapel Windows 
By Carroll Maxcy Published 

Last Work of Beloved Professor 

Distributed to Participants 

At Centenary 

Windows in the Thompson Memorial 
Chapel, a forty page illustrated booklet by 
the late Carroll Lewis Maxcy was dis- 
tributed to returning alumni as they regis- 
tered for the Mark Hopkins Centenary and 
to Chapel attendants last Sunday. The 
publication is dedicated to Professor 
Maxcy and is noted as "the last offering of 
that eager devotion to his Alma Mater- 
which distinguished his loyal service dur- 
ing thirty-seven years of happy teaching." 

Printed in a distinguished caslon type, 
the booklet contains descriptions of the 
thirty-two colored windows in the Thomp- 
son Chapel, with particular comment on 
their biblical significance and their bearing 
on the historical and educational traditions 
of Williams. Seven pictures illustrate a 
typically clear analysis which also includes 
notes on memorial reredos and tablets. 

LaFarge Designed Garfield Memorial 

With two exceptions, the windows were 
designed in the studios of .John Hardman 
and Co., of Birmingham, England, and 
furnished by a New York Company. The 
memorial window to James Abram Gar- 
field, which stands in the south wall of the 
west transept was designed by John Ia- 
Farge and made by Tiffany Company, 
New York. It shows Moses viewing the 
Promised Land from Mount Pisgah.

T. C. Smith, Although '^Not Enthusiastic,'' Supports 
Roosevelt; Opposed to ^Business Administration 

By Theodore Clarke Smith 

' Woodrow W.laon Profcesor of American History and Government 

My support of the Democratic nomina-^panied by legislation aiming to assert a 

tions, while not enthusiastic, is unhesitat- 
ing. While I am not convinced of the 
wisdom or practicality of many of the so- 
called New Deal measures, and share with 
all candid people the discomfort created by 
tlie spectacle of Federal aid administered 
tlnough the State Democratic party ma- 
chines; and while I feel that the expendi- 
tures have been carried to a point where 
danger is in sight ahead, I still feel that the 
aims of the present administration were 
ami are thoroughly justified. 

If our present democratic form of society 
is (o endure, our government must be able, 
^^ illi the assent of the voters, to use its full 
powers for the benefit of the public at 
large in a crisis, to the same degree, al- 
though with different methods, as in those 
countries which have sacrificed self-govern- 
ment for security and yielded to dictators. 
Tliis is wliat President Roosevelt and his 
party tried to do and even with the ob- 
stacles interposed by a reactionary Su- 
preme Court actually succeeded in carry- 
ing out. 

Approves Aims of Relief Program 

The measures for temporary relief were 
the most spectacular and least satisfactory 
"1 administration, but they were accom- 

governmental contro over financial and 
economic interests whose unrestrained ex- 
travagance had contributed to bringing on 
the crash of 1929. One does not have to 
assent to every detail nor be convinced of 
complete success in order to approve the 
general aim and purpose. 

That the voters for whose benefit the 
measures were undertaken thoroughly ap- 
proved is shown by the striking verdict in 
the congressional elections (if 1934. To 
talk of dictatorship in the face of these facts 
is simply silly. It was a clear case of rep- 
resentative government operating under 
constitutional methods for the benefit of 
the vast majority of the American people. 
Unless our government can so operate, it 
must break down as the governments of 
conspicuous European countries have 
broken down. 

Balks at 'Business' Profits 
Against this, the opposition offers nothing 
worthy of respect. Down to the nomina- 
tion of Gf yemor Landon, the Republican 
demand, lining up with the desires of the 
National Chamber of Commerce, the Man- 
ufacturers Association, and the so-called 
Liberty league, was for the restoration of

Report Shows 64% More 
Patient Days Since New 
Organization and $15 Tax 

Locke States Cost per Capita Is 

Halved in 2 Years; Special 

Nursing Cut 

Last year the Thompson Infirmary re- 
corded 697 more "patient days" than in 
1934-35. The story behind this figure and 
the story of the efficient advance of the 
Health and Athletics department stands 
as an illuminating feature of the recently 
published Administrative Report. 

Since the inauguration of a "compre- 
hensive, health-service plan" last year, 
the College has accepted "full responsi- 
bility" for the physical as well as intel- 
lectual training of students. Dr. Edwin 

A. Locke, who wrote the department's 
annual report, states that "our first con- 
cern is to increase the efficiency of the 
large group of 'well' students, although 
we are not unmindful of our responsibility 
to treat actual disease" and to establish 
preventive methods. Thus, body-build- 
ing classes, under the direction of Robert 

B. Muir, new swimming coach, have been 
instituted for "well" students whose 
general condition could nevertheless be 
improved. Also a slower, more accurate 
system of physical examinations for new 
students has been established, for the 
greater benefit of undergraduates. 

Cost Per Capita Lessened 
The great increase in the load carried 
by the infirmary last year is attributed 
to the institution of the $15.00 infirmary 
charge which affords undergraduates what 
is inaccurately called "free hospitalization 
for a week". This compulsory infirmary 
charge is considered of great importance 
in that students may go to the Health 
Center on the Slfghtetit provocation, 
the financial worry of hospital expenses 
being out of the question. Dr. Locke 
has stressed the foolishness of not re- 
porting to College doctors for experienced 

Despite the greater number of students 
cared for in the infirmary, (64% over 
1934-35 and 200% over the previous year)

Library Purchases Rare Set Of 
Valuable Historical Manuscripts 

One hundred and sixteen volumes of val- 
uable old family documents, private papers 
relevant to public affairs, and interesting 
government manuscripts which had drifted 
into private collections have been acquired 
by the Stetson Library with the purchase 
of a complete set of reports of the His- 
torical Manuscripts Commission. Organ- 
ized over fifty years ago, the Commission 
has been engaged in looking up and com- 
piUng obscure documents and reprinting 
them to make them available for the use of 

The set is expected to be valuable not 
only to the student of history, but also to 
those interested in the social and economic 
conditions, and the literature student be- 
cause of the light which is thrown upon 
prominent personalities. 

Scribes Write 80,000 Words 

In Reporting Centennial Fete 

In covering the four day Mark Hopkins 
Centenary, newspaper correspondents filed 
approximately 40,000 words by telegraph 
from the local office of Western Union, ac- 
cording to a survey prepared by the Wil- 
liams News Bureau. In addition to this, 
the Berkshire Evening Eagle and the 
North Adams Transcript published some 
20,000 words while the Associated Press, 
Boston Evening Globe, United Press, Troy 
Record, and other organizations received 
information by telephone. 

It is estimated that some 80,000 words 
were sent out of Williamstown on the cele- 
bration from Friday, October 9 through 
the closing day of the Centenary consider- 
ing all means of communication. The 
heaviest file during the occasion was on 
Mondaly, October 12, when the Hopkins 
legacy and the conferring of degrees broke 
simultaneously. The Williams News 
Bureau took care of one quarter of the 

Griffin Hall Hopkins Displays 

Shown for Last Time Today 

Undergraduates are offered a final op- 
portunity today to inspect the exhibits in 
Griffin Hall arranged for the Murk Hop- 
kins Centenary but held intjict until now, 
The displays of early Williams science, of 
valuable Hopkins manuscripts, and of the 
furniture and libraries originally used by 
the old Student Literary Societies may he 
viewed from 8.45 a .m. to 12 m. and from 
1.00 p. m. to 4.30 p.m. 

Letters and other valuable memorabilia 
of both Mark and Albert Hopkins form the 
basis of the exhibition which was visited by 
many of the visitors present for the Cen- 
tenary. Around the walls of the room are 
arranged the books of the old libraries, one 
of the few such collections intact today. 
Old tables used in the early debates of the 
original Adelphic Union and stuffed birds 
and other specimens which formed part of 
the first scientific museum here are also in- 
cluded in the presentation which will he 
dismantled shortly. 

Smith Students Battle 
In Rowdy Political Riot 

'Princetonian', 'Student' Declare for 

Roosevelt Although College 

Bodies Go G. O. P. 

Paced by Smith's fingernail riot, other 
college campuses waxed warm in political 
debate this week while here interest in the 
presidential campaign produced nothing 
except a rash of Democratic posters on 
Spring Street and the fruitless flight to 
Kansas City, Mo., made by Francis B. 
Sayre Jr., '37, president of the Demo- 
cratic First Voters' League, to introduce 
President Roosevelt for his speech there, 
gyre's .2Q00-mile airplane trip went for 
naught, however, when the Chief Execu- 
tive arrived two hours late and had to be 
introduced by the mayor. 

Among recent developments are the 
pro-Roosevelt editorials in the Daily 
Princetonian and the Amherst Student, 
run in conjunction with student polls. 
The Princetonian front page blast was 
accompanied by the straw vote results 
w'hich gave Landon a victory margin of 
three to one while at Amherst the under- 
graduates registered a similar result 
although the faculty declared for the 
incumbent by one ballot, 14-13. On the 
basis of numerous straw votes, the Yale 
Daily News predicted a G.O.P. landslide 
at Yale by two or three to one. 

Carnage Wreaked at Smith 

A Republican rally in John M. Greene

Indication that another active season 
lies before the Williams Glee Club was 
given Thursday when Arthur H. Tibbits 
'37, manager of the Musical Clubs, an- 
nounced that six concerts have been defi- 
nitely scheduled for the 1936-37 season, 
and seven more tentatively listed. Mark- 
ing an increase of three concerts over last 
year's season, the new program calls for 
eight trips away with only one presenta- 
tion set for Williamstown. 

Three dances will be given under the 
auspices of the Glee Club on the occasion 
of the two remaining home football games, 
it was also announced. A week from to- 
day, the night of the Tufts game here, the 
Purple Knights will make their first appear- 
ance this season, after a European cruise 
last summer, at an informal dance in the 
Lasell Gymnasium from 9 p. m. to nud- 
night. During Wesleyan week-end two 
more dances will be given when Hudson- 
Delange, jjopular orchestra which played 
here at Conunencement last June, holds 
forth the night before the game with Wes- 
leyan in the Gymnasium at a formal dance 
from lO.OO p. m. to 4 a. m., and on Satur- 
day evening Charlie Bamett and his Or-

other such concerts are scheduled, at Brad- 
ford Junior College March 6, and at Sarah 
Lawrence College, March 12, before the 
group gives its first and only home concert 
with Smith College on March 20. The 
only other definitely listed joint offering is 
with Bennington College at Bennington on 
April 17, while a presentation solely by the 
Williams group and sponsored by the Buf-

Professor Doughty Assails Roosevelt for Lack 

Of Judgment, Statesmanship, Sincerity, Courage 

By William Howard Doughty 

: > ;U,'''i..'' >it), . '< Professor of Government 

It is my intention to vote for Mr. Lan-*Bbility to select, and the w'llingness to act 

don in the coming Presidential Election. I 
am moved to do so because of my lack of 
confidence in Mr. Roosevelt and my 
steadily growing confidence in Mr. Lan- 

The exalted office of President of the 
United States imposes upon any occupant 
thereof responsibilities, and vests in him 
powers, ordinary and extraordinary, great- 
er than in the case of the chief executive of 
any other democratic state. It is of the 
utmost importance, therefore, that the 
President of the United States be possessed 
in the highest degree of those qualities and 
characteristics essential to the proper and 
efficient discliarge of the functions of the 

Lists Presidential Qualifications 

Such characteristics and qualities I 
would summarize as follows: ( 1 ) idealism, 
(2) sincerity, (3) sound judgment, (4) 
stability of purpose, (5) true statesmanship 
as opposed to mere political adoitness, (6) 
courage — the courage to forego the un- 
thinking plaudits of the crowd when wis- 
dom dictates a course counter to short- 
sighted popular demands, (7) disdain of 
demagogic appeals to class hatred, (8) the

counselors rather than visionaries and 

I am able to discover in Mr. Roosevelt 
only the first of these eight essentials. 

I doubt Mr. Roosevelt's sincerity. His 
action or inaction has too often belied his 
speech. He has lauded the merit system. 
In practice he has repudiated it. He has 
said that politics must he kept out of relief. 
With his full knowledge, the extent to 
which public monies and the power of 
petty political appointees in the adminis- 
tration of PWA and WPA projects Imve 
been employed for the advancement of 
party interests has become a scandal. He 
has taken a solemn oath to support the 
Constitution of the United States yet he 
has actually urged upon Congress the pas- 
sage of a bill, regardless of any doubts as to 
its constitutionality, however reasonable. 
Roosevelt Deemed 'Unstable' 

I questi(m the soundness of his judg- 
ment. The fact that he has urged much 
legislation, the manifest efTcct of which 
would he to beget and to pi-olong uncer- 
tainty in business and industry, would in- 
dicate that he fails to grasp the tnitli that

Harry L. Hopkins' campaign volume, 
Sjtending lo Save, tells of a ijuaint proposal 
made under the Hoover ret'ime: tliat food- 
scraps be saved by restaurants and turned 
over to the unemployed, who woukl chop 
wood in return lest their morale be under- 
mined by charity. The idea was ap- 
parently favored by Secretary of War 
Hurley, but was never put into practise 
on a larj^e .scale. Perhajjs the unemjiloyed 
would fain have filled their bellies witl: 
swill, but even in starvation, the govern-

Republicans Wanted! 

The New liepvblic has been publishing 
a series of statements by well-known 
liberals on how they plan to vote next

who is williifi; to admit that he will vote

there can hv, no permanent recovery so loiiK 
as .such uncertainty persists. 

I find him unstable in the extreme. With 
one hand he spends millions of the people's 
money to remove thousands of acres of 
land from cultivation, and then with the 
other he spends as many millions on vari- 
ous projects to bring under cultivation as 
many more. 

I find him essentially the practical ))oli- 
tician rather than the statesman. His 
alliance with Mr. Farley, an<l his compla- 
ent acceptance of a Tammanyizin); of the 
whole Federal .setup by the latter, often by 
means not above .suspicion, leave no doubt 
on this point. 

Courage'? His weak and iierfunctory 
veto of the Bonus Bill would never have 
been penned by a man of the courage of 
Grover Clevelnml. 

His frequent references to "Selfish Inter- 
ests", "Entrenched Wenltli", "Prince of 
Privilege", "Economic Royalists", "The 
Money Changers", etc. eDithets that could 
have been employed for no other purpose 
than to stir u]) class hatred by spreading 
the idea that all the successful and well-to- 
do are dishonest exploiters of the less fortu- 
nate, ccmviet him of stooping to a level of 
demagogy little above that of the soap 
box ttgitjitor. 

Finally, many passages in the writings 
and public utterances of those whom he 
has chosen as his closest advisers stamp 
them as visionaries and doctrinaires — men 
who are primarily interested in carrying 
out experiments regardless of cost, or who 
are eager to implant here social, economic 
and political theories and practices which 
are the very antitheses of those which have 
given to us a greater degree of liberty and a 
higher standard of living than has ever 
been enjo.yed by ajiy other people. 
In Mr. I.Andon, on the other hand, as his 

record and bis speeches reveal his person- 
ality and his views on llic issues before the 
country, 1 find all of the (|ualities and char- 
acteristics above mentioned in a most de- 
sirable det^ree.

Story of Chapel Windows 
by Carroll Maxcy Published 

(Continued from Page) 
Maxcy, the "Missionary Window" origi- 
nally stood in the old Chapel (now Good- 
rich Hall). It was transferred when the 
Thomjison Memorial Chapel was com- 
pleted in Iii05. The "peculiar reference to 
Williams CclleKe as the birthplace of 
Foreign Missions in America" iselaborated 
in the l.'ooklet which describes at length 
the figure of Chiist, of St. Augustine, and 
of the eighteen Ajiostolic and post-Apos-

Considering the "Science" or "Creation 
Window" in the East transept, the author 
traces "the harmony between the i:hilos-

Study of Man' and the conception of the 
artist in his portrayal of Man in the Uni- 
verse as exemplified in this comjiosite 
Eight Nave Windows Show Sequence 
The eight windows in the nave, he 
writes, exenijilify the various "activities in 
wliich Man has engaged to the glory of 
God; 'the goodly fellow.ship of the 
Pro])hets', the 'glo.ious company of the 
Apostles', the 'Holy Church throughout all 
the world', together with those who have 
served well their several crafts, and have 
earned honor and a name in their genera- 
tions." Dr. Maxcy comments only briefly 
on the seventeen small windows in the 
choir and Apse, illustrative of musical in- 
stiuments usetl in early Hebrew minstrelsy 
and mentioned in Old Testament literature. 
The Thompson Memorial Wimlow, 
"erected to the (!lory of (lod and in Mem- 
ory of Frederick Ferris Thompson", illus- 
trates the text woven into the design, 
"Inasnnich as ye have done it unto the 
least of these my brethren ye have done it 
unto me." The author calls attention to 
the "peculiar application to him in whose 
memory the building was erected". Mr. 
Thompson was a member of the class of 
1850, a trustee, and one who perfoimod 
countless "little acts of kindness." 

Near the end of the booklet is a jjicture 
of the axis stone which is the tomb of 
Ephraim Williams and lies at the crossing 
of the nave and transepts. Buried imme- 
diately w here he fell on t he field of battle so

Liberty League nient the revelation in 
the last issue of the 
Cow that our college theme song. The 
Mountains, and the rather more ribald 
Man on the Flying Trapeze were in reality 
the same time. A much more disturbing 
musical note, thouRh, was struck when 
we discovered most of our cam])us was 
being hoaxed into singing The Irder- 
nalionale as a part of the average frater- 
nity house after-dinner repertoire. True, 
this tune has been masquerading under 
the title of Fling Those Golden Gates Wide 
Open. This proves beyond a shadow of 
Liberty league doubt that Moscow's 
far-flimg nets have already wove their 
subtle web in our own fair community. 
As undergraduates carelessly sung the 
opening words, did they realize that the 
true translation of the first few bars was 
Oh rise, ye prisoners of starvation, etc.'? 
And to top the whole thing off, we saw a 
vicious hit of propaganda actually scribbled 
on the assignment board in our own 
Recohu office just today; NEWSHAWKS 
OF THE WORLD, UNITE! the sinister 
letters scrawled. The situation is ob- 
vious. We must, to parajjlirase our 
saviour Al Smith, choose between the 
Liberty League or Moscow, nc; Williams- 

Flickers Swing Time, the latest Fred 
Astaire-Ginger Rogers vehicle, 
is the most personable effort of these to])- 
ranking stars since the Gay Divorcee. 
Taking a welcome break from the pseudo- 
Noel Coward romantic nuances, Mr. 
Astaire and Miss Rogers have ado))ted a 
new romantic attitude, somewhat along 
the lines of Collier's short stories. This 
new api)roach to the obvious fade-out 
clinch is so much of an improvement that 
an incredibly weak climax sequence is for- 
gotten. This objectionable ending is of 
the new "just too hilarious for words" 
school, which Hollywood has borrowed from 
almost every addition of George White's 
Scandals on the legitimate. The princi- 
ples start laughing for a fairly logical 
reason, and then ap[)arently just can't 
help themselves. After a while we found 
ourselves squirming a little, and wishing 
we'd had a couple of beers to loosen up 
before vve'd made our own entrance. 
But the rest of the film is excellent; 
especially the dance sequences, most of 
wliicli look as though they could actually 
be accomplished on a fair-sized stage. 
Fred Astaire's solo tap in blackface is 
more than worth the price of admission.

Hofmann Recital Tonight 

(Continued from First Page) 
reason for this lies fundamentally in Mr. 
Ilofmann's mastery and power to recreate 
the wonder of a masterpiece. He does not 
do this by some new trick or meretricious 
effect, although there are times when he 
presents a jjassage in a fresh interpretative 
light, which is a different thing. He 
comes always nearer the innermost secret 
of great music. He is always more aware 
and communicative of the profound 
truth of simplicity, and more able, with 
his really gigantic equipment, to capture 
the flash of inspiration as it emanated 
from the spirit of the composer." 

After Mr. Hofmann's Rio de .laneiro 
re(!ital last June, the Brazilian American 
wrote, "But technical perfection is not the 
explanation of Hofmann's greatness. At 
the i)iano he is completely detached from 
his audience, his surroundings, and seem- 
ingly the earth itself. He appears to

and the addition of new equipment, the 
cost per capita last year was roughly one 
half that of the three prec'oding years. 
This is due to increased efficiency and tir(!- 
lesH work by doctors and nurses. The 
special nursing was cut to a minimum, 
and the burden was carried by Miss 
Madeline Evans, Matron of the Infirmary, 
and her staff. There has been no per- 
manent addition to the nursing staff. 

Results Termed 'Gratifying' 

l-ast year QO'^^ of the student body were 
seen by College Doc^tors, and there were 
5,983 dispensary visits to the Wild House, 
174 of these (filing more than ten times. 
38() patients were admitted to the In- 
firmary, their average nuiiil)er of day's 
slay being 4.7. 

A survey of the class of 193(), in which 
151 cases were studied, indicates that 133 
gained weight during their four years, 
with an average increase of 14.3 pounds, 
or a total of almost a ton. 03% grew 
in height from a quarter to three inches 
while nearly a half noted an increase in 
endurance and vitality. In these "grati- 
fying" results "obtained essentially with- 
out supervision," Dr. Locke found "the 
greatest promise for the health work 
plaimed for the future." 

The efficiency of the department was 
increased with the appointment to the 
staff of three notable doctors last year. 
Austen Riggs and Charles H. Kind)erly, of 
Stockbridge held bi-weekly office hours in 
the Health Centers and have been made 
consultants in neuro-psyehiatry, in step 
with a trend on other ('am))uses of increased 
emphasis on mental hygiene. Dr. Nor- 
man B. McWillianis, who performed a.])-

leapt into the thick of the melee with 
bared fingernails and flailing f(^et, wreak-

ranks of the embattled Democrats. 

First indications llmt something un-

Purple Ties Bennington 
2-2 in Field Hockey Tilt 

Secret Battle Continues Colorful 

Series as Mikes and Ikes 

Meet Amazons 

By John B. Swift '38 

Eleven Purple iron men battled tlie 
Bennington field hockey team to a 2-2 tie 
in the teeth of a bitter wind in the second 
in the serieH of contests — shrouded in 
secrecy — made famous Ijy last spring's 
encounter and continued in a colorful 
game ut the Amazon's field Monday after- 
noon. Supporting the pajama-clad Mike- 
Ike combination was a small Williams 
cheering section composed of those who 
were fortunate enough to be informed of 
the highly-vaunted conflict, while Benning- 
ton girls braved the cold weather to wrap 
themselves in blankets or other suitable 
attire and valiantly supported the home 

True to form was the entrance of the 
visitors, who arrived on the field in a large 
touring car clad in long black hooded 
robes tliat smacked mysteriously of the 
goat room, marched out upon the turf in 
prisoner's step, and, disrobing, revealed 
neatly tailored uniforms of nondescript 
pajamas gleaned from campus wardrobes. 
Ike's loss of a shoe during the course of the 
martial procession caused the only dis- 
cordant note in the solemn affair. 
Wliistles Note Women's Rights 

At the outset even the casual spectator 
could predict a battle royal. The lame 
and the halt cheered wildly as eleven 
perfect specimens of manhood clubbed and 
ran, while even the blind knew that the 
incessant blasts of the whistle meant an 
infringement upon women's rights by the 
Purple stiilwarts. Time and again Ike led 
the furious assault on the Bennington

Purple Harriers Face Strong 
R.P.I. Group Today in Opener 

Entering upon the first of its five-meet 
schedule, the Varsity cross country team 
will face R. P. I. this afternoon over the 
Taconic course at 1.30 |). m. following an 
arduous three-week conditioning |jerio<l. 
Stiff oi)position is expected from the visit- 
ing harriers who defeated C. C. N, Y. last 
Saturday by a wide margin. 

With the graduation of Dave Gregory, 
holder of the course record and ace Purple 
distance runner, Williams faces a serious 
loss, which makes it difficult to determine 
the strength of this year's team. 

Coach Tony Plansky hopes to fill Greg- 
ory's gap by using two sophomores, 
Johnny Marshall and Bay Kiliani, both 
from the ranks of last year's freshman 
team, who have shown up well in the only 
time trials of the season held a week ago. 
Others whom Plansky contemplates run- 
ning include Captain Art Stanwood, Bill 
Collens, Ken Rood, all veterans of previous 
seasons, and Jim Gregory, a oophomore 
and cousin of last year's captain. Plansky 
had not chosen his five official entrants on 
Thursday evening. 





cage but the stubborn resistance of full- 
backs Young and Brown gave goalie 
Rowlie few opportunities to exhibit her 

Precarious to the visitor's fortunes was 
Mike's wild dash to retrieve the ball 
from the sideline only to plunge out of 
sight into a ditch on the far side of the 
field. The weaker sex was first to tally, 
however, as their determined advances 
upon the men finally clubbed the ball 
through goalie Ike. Retaliation was 
swift, as the spectacular Ike-Mike for- 
ward line, seriously handicapped by an 
efficient referee, sent a fast one past the 
battling Rowlie into the net, followed by 
deep-throated roars of "Fight, Benning- 
ton!" from ten feminine voices. 

'Lushy' Pajamas Cause Speculation 
Strict training was observed at lialf- 
time, Williams scorning all thought of sub- 
stitutions and gritting teeth for the gruel- 
ling thirty minutes to follow. In the 
Vermonter's camp, speculation was rife 
as to the Identity of "the boy in the 
'lushy' pajamas", the women evidently 
ragingly envious of the visitor's exotic 
uniforms as compared with their own very, 
very practical blue middies, shorts, and 

The second half whistle inaugurated 
a grim battle for supremacy, with the fair 
sex using their well-known wiles in at- 
tempting to wear down the opposition by 
use of substitutes. After a hard-fought 
scrimmage before the Bennington cage 
Ike clubbed the ball to Mike who in turn 
garnered a second Purple score, and a mo- 
mentarily triumphant male eleven trotted 
back to position. Egged on by yelling 
fans, however, the Amazons clubbed their 
way down the field and bounced their 
last tally off the shin of an unfortunate 
Mike. The Purple's superb technique 
and sheer determination were insufficient 
to clinch victory in the subsequent mo- 
ments, as the final whistle announced 
that the eternal question still remained 
without answer.

Still smacking their collective lips from 
the second half drive which snowed Haver- 
ford under last Saturday, 46-0, Coach 
Charlie Caldwell's Varsity football players 
will attempt to duplicate last year's victory 
when they meet Bowdoin on the Bruns- 
wick, Maine, field this afternoon at 2.00 
p. m. 

With Eddie Stanley prepared to start 
the game, WilUams chances look better 
than even, despite the weak pass defense, 
which can still stand plenty of practice. 
After the dismal Purple attempts to stop 
Haverford's passing attack, Caldwell has 
spent a good deal of time during the past 
week trying to perfect this part of the 
game, but with no spectacular success. 
Long sessions of punting have proved more 
fruitful, however, and, in case of inability 
to use Dick Col man for any reason, Doug 
Stearns, Tim King, and Fielding Simmons 
can all fill the breach. 

Last Saturday's Line-up Probable 

Although Caldwell has announced no 
definite starting line-up, it is probable 
that Ken Palmer will retain his berth as 
first string left tackle in place of Bill Chap- 
man. With the exception of this position, 
which is by no means certain the rest of the 
starters will he the regular first team. 
Mike Latvis and Phil Stearns will be at 
left and right end, respectively, Mike Ten- 
ney will be at right tackle, .Johnny Jay and 
Dick Colman at guards. Captain Danny 
Lewis at center, and Stearns, Simmons, 
Moon Duane and Stanley in the backfield. 

In their second year under Adam Walsh, 
former Notre Dame linesman the Polar 
Bears are not as formidable as last year,

"My Man 

Fresh from Its victory against Hamilton 
last week, the Williams soccer team will 
encounter Mass. State at 2.00 p. ni. on 
Cole Field today in first home game of the 
current season. Judging from its showing 
last week it is obvious that the Purple has 
one of the strongest outfits ever to repre- 
sent the college, but at the same time it 
will undoubtedly be forced to play their 
best against the Statesmen who suffered a 
3-1 setback at the hands of Williams 
last year in the first meeting between the 
two colleges, and are anxious to even up 
the series. 

Although Eldon Stowell is still out of 
the line-up with an injured hand, Williams 
will field the same powerful eleven that 
saw action in last week's opening game. 
The fonvard line of Howie Sheble and 
Keen Butcher at the wing posts, Pete Gal- 
lagher at center with Famy Fowle and 
Johnny Harris capably flanking him, 
should prove a match for any opposition, 
while the strong halfback line of "Booty" 
Blake, Humphrey Hadley, and Dave Close 
seem to be getting better with every prac- 
tice and should hit its stride this afternoon. 
The defense is well taken care of by Cap- 
tain Gray Larkum and Kelso Davis, play- 
ing in Stowell's position, at fullbacks, the

After three weeks of intensive practice, 
the Freshman football team will open its 
current season this afternoon against the 
Middlebury yearlings on Weston field at 
2.00 p. m., while the Freshman soccer 
squad is opposing Deerfield on Cole field 
in its initial encounter. 

The Middlebury yearlings dropped their 
first game to Union, but will present a 
heavy outfit which ought to cause the 
home team a lot of trouble. Lacking the 
services of Captain Norris, Deerfield, In 
Its opening game, conquered Wilbraham 
5-4 in a contest in which the Green and 
Whit* forward line excelled. 

Offense 'Rotten,' Says Fowle 

Concerning the football opener Coach 
Bill Fowle said "I don't think we're good 
enough to predict the result. So far, the 
defense has shaped up pretty well, but the 
offense has not started to click. I might 
go so far as to say it has been rotten, and 
unless we get going, we will be in for a 
plenty tough game on Saturday." Al- 
though no definite line-up has been 
made, Pete Lehman and Brad Wood 
probably will start on the ends, sup- 
ported by Walt Mitchell and George 
Frost at the tackles. Archa Knowlton 
and Dud Head have cinched the guard 
positions, with "Hu" Howard comiJeting 
the line at center. There is a wealth 
of reserve material for the forward wall as 
Bob Spang, George Duncan, Jim Adams, 
"Moose" Rossell, Emil Martocci, Joe 
French, and John Lowe all seem sure to 
see action early in the game. 

Coach Fowle has not as yet selected 
the first backfield to take the field against 
Middlebury. "Red" Batten and Ed 
Borden are battling for the quarterback 
berth, while starting halfbacks will be 
selected from .John Scully, Pete Mc- 
Carthy, Ray Kirk, and Bob Cramer.

Gene Strassburger, are the four up|)erclass- 
men who qualified, and two of th(M, 
Krauthoff and Strassburger, met defeat in 
the only first round matches played Ijy 
Thursday night. 

Jones put out Strassburger, two up on

counted for Krauthoff. Along with An- 
derson and Schriber, the rest of the field 
advanced into the second round through 

For the third consecutive year the fresh- 
men give indications of being particularly 
strong. For the last two seasons the first 
year teams have been exijeptional, espi^c- 
ially the 1938 outfit, which ilefeated (lie

without the loss of a single match.

Football Team Favored 

Against Bowdoin Today 

(Cont.*nued from Fourth Page) 
when Williams handed them their only de- 
feat, 27-0, in a Maine Championship sea- 
son. With the loss of Smith and Ash- 
kana/.y at right tackle and right guard, 
through ineligibility, the line is consider- 
ably weakened, and the team lacks the 
drive and coordination of the 1935 club. 
Jack Reed, 145-pound halfback, will be the 
man for the Purple to watch, if his showing

against Mass. State and Wesleyan are any 

Bowdoin's Slow Start No Indication 
The record of the opponents this year 
looks far from formidable on paper, but 
even last season Bowdoin was a slow starts 
ing team, and 4nay have gained both team- 
work and confidence since last week-end, 
when the Cardinals stopped them, 20-0. 
On that occasion, they looked green and 
generally sloppy, but nevertheless held the 
Cardinals to one first down. 

Passing, which last year was such a valu- 
able reserve vveajon, has proved rather 
independable to Caldwell's team in its 
first three games, and the ability to stop 
enemy forwards is practically negligible. 
Despite constant w-ork on it all week, the 
defense of Stearns and Simmons, with 
Stanley back, looked very amateurish 
Thursday when they tried to knock down 
throws in a long siege. 

Yearling Football Team to 
Face Middlebury in Opener

edge on the other candidates for fullback. 

In scrimmages against the varsity, the 
yearling soccer aggregation has shown 
promise which should carry it through 
a successul season. The fullbacks, Art 
Richardson and Carmer Hadley, have 
shown very well against the assaults of the 
varsity forward line. An aggressive half- 
back line will he composed of Bill Touret, 
Walt Wynans, and Woodie Thomson. 
The yearling coach, Phil Bradley '39, 
stated, "If only the forward line can score 
a few goals, .1 am sure that the visitors 
will find the going tough through our half- 
back and fullback lines, which are better 
than the average Freshman lines." 

Myles Fox and Bill Budington have won 
the wing positions by their dominating 
play, while Ned Levering and Pearsall 
Helms, both of whom have been moved up 
from the halfback lines, have assured 
themselves a position in the starting line- 
up at the insides. Oscar Imer at center 
completes the forward line. The goal 
will be guarded by Henry Lammerts who 
was shifted from the forward wall to take 
over net tending.

Bowdoin Trims Purple 
6-0 in Upset Saturday 
With Superior Line Play 

Reed Scores Only Touchdown with 

50- Yard Runback of Punt 

In Last Period 

By Edward A. O'Neill '37 

Jack Reed, speedy Bowdoin back, 
ciuiKlit a Williams punt midway through 
tlip last quarter and galloped fifty yards 
through the entire Purple team to register 
I lie only score of the game played on the 
lainy, wind-swept gridiron at Brunswick 
and gave the hardy Polar Bears a well- 
earned 6-0 victory over a lethargic, 
sluggish visiting eleven which entered 
the game a top-heavy favorite. 

Outweighing the home team by almost 
live pounds per man from tackle to tackle, 
llie Williams line, which distinguished 
itself only by lack of enthusiasm, was out- 
nished and outcharged for a good half of 
the game. Under pressure in the closing 
minutes when they were trailing by a 
.single touchdown, the Ephmen completely 
folded up and were saved from further 
liuiiiiliation by the time-keeper's w'histle. 
Rain Hinders Passes 

A near-hurricane blew all afternoon, 
and coupled with the lashing rain, cut 
jiassing down to a minimum. The only 
spectacular completion was on a toss from 
Kureokas to Fitts in the final stanza, the 
latter leaping high into the air to grasp 
I lie ball from the expectant arms of the 
entire Williams backfield. The futiUty of 
aiiv sustained aerial attack enabled the 
astute Adam Walsh, Bowdoin mentor, to 
u8(' a nine-man defensive line that com- 
pletely balked the heralded running game 
of the losers. 

Throughout the first quarter;" Vith a 
favoring wind, Caldwell's charges were 
unable to dent far into the home team's 
territory due to the ferocity of Walsh's 
forward wall. The surprise of the local 
followers was heightened by the fact that 
many of their first stringers were still 
injured from the Wesleyan game and, as a 
result, eight sophomores were in the 
starting line-up for the defending Maine 

Williams Improves 

In the second period, the Purple gave 
indications that it might display some of 
its latent power, when it engineered a drive 
from midway in Williams' territory to the 
Howdoin ten-yard line. With Fielding 
Simmons, the only life in a drab Berkshire 
liiiokfield, doing most of the running, 
Williams seemed headed for a touchdown, 
but lost the ball on downs as the half-time

Freshman Football Team 
Upset by Middlebury, 7-0 

Opponents Score on Opening Play 

While Deerfield Downs Cub 

Soccer Squad 1-0 

The Freshman sport season opened last 
Saturday afternoon on Cole Field with the 
yearlings losing two encounters. The 
football team bowed to a spirited Middle- 
bury aggregation 7-0 on one of the weirdest 
plays ever witnessed on the gridiron, while 
the soccer squad dropped an evenly fought 
game to a powerful Deerfield contingent 

On the opening play of the game, Ma- 
honey of Middlebury kicked to the Wil- 
liams 32-yard line where the ball eluded 
the backfield rolling over the goal line. 
Evidently Purple yearlings thought the 
l)all was dead after it had crossed the end- 
zone and would be brought back to the 
twenty-yard stripe where it would be put 
into play. Consequently none of them 
fell on it. Here Profy, the visitor's left 
guard, pounced upon the pigskin. Referee 
MacShane ruled that the ball was free and 
Middlebury was entitled to a touchdown. 
Cahn, on a buck through the line, netted 
the extra point. This gave the Blue and 
White a 7-0 lead which it never re- 
linquished the remainder of the contest. 
Punting Duel Features 

Neither team could gain through the 
other's line, with only four first downs be- 
ing made during the game, three of these 
being netted by the home team. Through- 
out the contest a punting duel between 
Red Batten and Pete McCarthy of the 
yearlings and Mahoney of the visitors, all 
of whom got off kicks of over 50 yards, 
kept the scoring down. 

Williams made a determined bid to 
score in the fourth quarter after Ray Kirk 
had carried a Middlebury punt back to the

Schuman Believes Landon''s Election Wi)l Foment 
'Class Polities', Favors Roosevelt's Foreign Policy 

'-' "' '• By Frederick L. Schuman 

Visiting Lecturer in Political Science 
Every American voter who is cognizant*Mr. Landon, on the 

(if the rising tides of fanaticism and 
violence abroad should congratulate him- 
self, as he approaches November 3, that 
.^merican politics still offers a choice be- 
tween Tweedledum and Tweedledee. In 
every election candidates accuse rivals of 
undermining the Constitution, destroying 
prosperity and digging the nation's grave. 

But sophisticated citizens always realize 
that these are vote-catching devices and 
that so long as the American two party 
system retains its historic characteristics, 
neither party is angelic or devilish nor in 
the least likely to realize the highest hopes 
of its friends or the worst fears ol its ene- 
mies. The fundamentals of democracy 
will be safe in the hands of either Mr. 
Roosevelt or Mr. Landon, particularly if 
Mr. I.Andon sees fit to repudiate Hearst 
support as Mr. Roosevelt has repudiated 
Communist support. 

Fortunately, Americans are not addicted 
to violent political difTerences and are still 
disposed to settle their differences by 
counting heads instead of breaking them. 
Nevertheless, America must choose. 

Among my reasons for choosing Roose- 
velt in preference to landon is the con- 
viction that class politics is dangerous to 
democracy. Many who share this con- 
viction will for this very reason vote for 

ground that the 
President has championed the interests of 
workers and farmers against Big Business. 

But class cleavages are less likely to 
become fixed and to be reflected in political 
alignments in a second Roosevelt adminis- 
tration than in a landon administration. 
With business now almost unanimously 
opposed to Roosevelt, Landon will be re- 
garded by many -voters as a Big Business 
President, with the Democrats in oppo- 
sition tending to become the party of the 
poor and disinherited. 

Under another Roosevelt administra- 
tion, many business interests, profiting 
from improved economic conditions which 
may be expected to continue regardless of 
the outcome in November, will become 
reconciled to the Democratic Party while 
some farmers and wage-earners will cease 
to think of it as the exclusive champion 
of their welfare. A Roosevelt victory will 
oblige the G. O. P. to liberalize itself before 
1940 and to make a wider appeal for 
farmer and labor support. 

If it is a victory by a narrow margin, 
as now seems likely, it will oblige the 
Democrats, almost inevitably , to grow more 
conservative in order to win wider business 
support four years hence. These con- 
siderations seem to me more important 
for the maintenance of liberal political

W.C.A. Members Discuss 
Plans For 1936-37 Season 

Purpose, Activities of Association 

Outlined to Freshmen at 

First Meeting 

''The W. C. A. this year will try more 
than ever to act rather than talk, to stress 
practical efficiency and objective service 
rather tlian theory and discussion, which 
so often degenerate into a pose." 

With these words John D. Reeves '37, 
President of the Williams Christian Asso- 
ciation, inaugurated the 193(5-37 season 
of tilt organization at its first meeting 
Friday evening in Jesup Hall. Three 
other members also spoke, each outlining 
briefly the purposes and operations of the 
various activities of the religious associ- 
ation to the freshmen present. 

Discusses W. C. A. Opportunities 

Reeves told the fifty or more students 
at the meeting that he felt sure there was 
work in the organization which would in- 
terest every one, and he especially urged 
the freshmen to join the Freshman Cabi- 
net, which, he said, would probably meet 
every other week. Reeves spoke briefly 
about the work of some of the members in 
local Sunday schools and young peoples' 

In discussing the Northfield confer- 
ences he announced that Williams has sent 
large delegations in past years, and he ex- 
pressed the hope that this practice would 
continue. The president urged all those 
so inclined to become members of the 
Church of Christ in Williams College and 
to participate in the daily chapel services. 
Chest Fund Difficulties 

"The Chest Fund Drive was not the 
success it should have been last year," 
stated Frank B. Conklin '37 as he dis- 
cussed plans for the impending campaign. 
"The drive for $4566 vme oversubscribed, 
but many undergraduates never paid their 
pledges. This placed iis in a difficult 
position because we had already pledged 
so much to the Red Cross and the local 
welfare organizations. We can't let this 
happen this year." He emphasized that 
he w'ould welcome any constructive sug- 
gestions about the management of the 

Francis B. Sayre '37, Vice-President of 
the Christian Association, spoke briefly on 
the activities of the Boys' Club. Pointing 
out that a great opportunity lay in this 
work, and that the town pays half the ex- 
penses, he made a plea for student volun- 
teers and financial support. Donald A. 
Brown '38, Chairman of the Welfare 
Committee, described the assistance given 
by the college to local poor people and 
urged student co-ojieration in this cause. 
This year the Committee, besides con- 
ducting the Old Clothes Drive, intends to 
collect old magazines to be distributed in 
the neighboring CCC camps and at local 
welfare organizations. 

Powerful Purple Booters 
Overcome Statesmen, 3-0 

Sheble, Close, Fowle Score on Wet 

Field as Williams Wins Its 

Second Game 

The Williams booters kept their record 
clean by defeating a highly-touted outfit 
from Massachusetts State 3-0 Saturday 
afternoon on Cole Field. The game was 
played under adverse weather conditions 
which severely hindered both teams as the 
surface of the field was under three inches 
of mud. The teamwork exhibited by the 
Purple clearly indicated that Uncle Ed 
Bullock has developed one of the best 
teams ever to represent Williams. 

Scores in the first three periods proved 
too much for the visitors and led the home 
team to its second straight shutout. 
Howie Sheble, Dave Close, and Famy 
Fowle netted the goals through a clever 
passing attack which had the opponents 
baffled the entire game. 

Starting off in their characteristic slow 
manner, the home team did not begin to 
function until the close of the first period. 
Staving off repeated attacks on their own 
goal, launched by the visitors' offense 
which looked at first as though it was going 
to rout the Purple, t he Ephmen managed to

Twelve Examples of American 
Art on Exhibi.ion in Lawrence 

"American Pictures of the Year," 
twelve color reproductions of paintings se- 
lected by a group of experts as the best 
that contemporary American art has to 
offer, comprises the new exhibition in the 
I^awrence Hall art museum. Many of the 
works, although only recently completed, 
have attained wide-S])read recognition. 

The display, circulated by Living Amer- 
ican Art, Inc., of New York, comprises the 
work of twelve different artists, among 
whom the following: Rico l^ebrun, Wil- 
liam Cropper, Aaron Bolirod, William J. 
Glackens, John Sloan, Ix)uis Bouche, 
Raphael Soyer, Yasuo Kuniyoshi, Guy 
Pene du Bols, George Grosz, Peggy Bacon, 
and Reginald Marsh. Several of these 
painters have had pictures exhibited in 
previous Williamstown exhibitions. 

Peggy Bacon, whose book of caricatures 
entitled "Off With Their Heads" was pub- 
lished about a year ago, is showing "The 
Nosegay", a pastel picturing a ragged 
individual presenting his equally down- 
trodden steed with flowers. "High Yal- 
ler," a picture depicting a resplendent 
native of Manhattan's Harlem walking 
past a typical darktown residence, is the 
work of Reginald Marsh on exhibition.

Committee, Proposes 'Ward Heeling' 

Doubting Success With Students, 

New Dealers Plan to Stump 


After weeks of unsuccessful effort, the 
campus Democratic leaders ho|)e to start 
their campaign for Roosevelt's reelection 
with a rally in Jesup Hull Amiitorium 
Thursday evening at which Miss Virginia 
Binns, Mt. Holyoke '37, and one or more 
nationally prominent politicians are ex- 
pected to speak. This meeting follows 
the endeavors of Irving Goldman '37, 
chairman of the college Democratic com- 
mittee, to organize a joint session with 
Bennington New Dealers which failed 
when the Vermonters declared themselves 
to be thoroughly occupied with gatherings 
of their own. 

John C. Goodbody '37, head of the 
Landon-Knox Club organization com- 
mittee, had nothing to say about the Re- 
publicans' plans for the future and refused 
to worry when advised of the Democratic 
move. . .-The proposed two-party rally 
w'hi^tPthe Forum and Liberal Club are to 
sponsor together October 25 is as yet with- 
out speakers although strenuous efforts are 
being made to se(!Ure well known men ac- 
cording to Norman L. Newball '37, presi- 
dent of the 1 iberal Club, who is arranging 

the meeting. . 

Goldman Fearful of Rally 
Goldman, frankly dubious about the in- 
terest in a Roosevelt rally and wishing to 
avoid a "fizzle like the Republicans had", 
did not definitely decide to hold a rally 
until Miss Binns accepted his invitation to 
speak. The Mt. Holyoke senior, one of 
the outstanding delegates at the Model 
League session last spring, intimated that 
others from South Hadley might come to 
the meeting according to the college Dem- 
ocratic leader. 

The New Deal Organization was formed 
last spring but has been seriously ham- 
pered in its work by an empty treasury and 
a lack of members aside from the founders. 
Frank B. Sayre, Jr., '37, chairman ex- 
officio of the local group and president of

Hofmann, Thompson Concert Recitalist, Has Special 
Piano Built for His Tiny Hands; Was Child Prodigy 

By Francis Boardman, Jr. '38 

A recital by Josef Hofmann is a notable 'ment which will be shipped to Chapin 

Hall, has a keyboard which is reduced to 
meet the flying little hands that jjerform 
technical feats at once arousing the admira- 
tion of the public and the despair of would- 
be imitators. 

Like Paderewski and De Pachmann, 
Hofmann plays from a specially con- 
structed stool, which is always shipjied 
with his big Steinway. Bearing scars re- 
sulting from thousands of miles of touring, 
the brown-cushioned seat resembles a milk 
stool. It IS unusually high and can be 
folded and carried like a tool box. 
Hofmann's Family Talented 

Josef Hofmann's father was a Professor 
of Music at the Warsaw Conservatoire and 
conductor at the Warsaw Opera. His 
mother was a distinguished singer, and his 
aunt a noted pianist of her time. It was 
no wonder that an extraordinary talent 
was discovered in little >Iosef at the age of 
three when his father first instructed him. 
At six, he had played his first concert; at 
nine made a continental tour; at twelve, 
in 1887, he journeyed to the United States. 
The young artist played fifty-tw o concerts 
in two and a half months, but his future 
engagements were cancelled following the 
interference of the Society for the Preven- 
tion of Cruelty to Children. 

Shortly afterwards the child musician's 
(Continued on Third PBi;e) 

entertainment even for the stone deaf, for 
there is no great pianist living today more 
fascinating even to watch. Totally un- 
concerned with what his audience is think- 
ing of his productions, the short, thick set, 
sixty-year old musician will face the key- 
board in Chapin Hall Friday evening in 
that intriguing manner which has devel- 
oped since he first played at the age of 

It was Ernest Schelling, teacher and 
conductor, who said that Hofmann has 
the perfect piano hands. They look boy- 
ish in size, the fingers being from a half to 
three quarters of an inch shorter than 
those of an average hand of like age and 
sex. Hofmann gives the feeling that he 
could push them to any speed, as they fly 
lightly, and pliantly over the keys. Even 
with his little finger, which with so many 
stands out stiff and straight, he uses a min- 
imum of action. Yet with astounding 
strength, his finger action is incomparably 
"even, swift, sure, uniform, and effortless." 
Steinway Provides Piano 

Nature apparently having designed 
Hofmann for a purpose other than playing 
the piano, the Steinway Company has 
done for him as it did for another stubby- 
fingered Pole, Paderewski. Hofmann has 
been supplied with a piano to meet his in- 
dividual requirements. The special instru-

Life at Williams sometimes seems to be a long succession of salesmen 
eager to acquire the surplus shekels of the undergraduates. Ordinarily 
our sentiment would be to warn the unsuspecting student against their 
wiles. With the approach of the first of the Thompson Concerts, how- 
ever, we unblushingly urge our readers to buy a ticket if they can possibly 
scrape the money together. 

To the increasingly large proportion of undergraduates who are 
already initiated into the charms of great music performed by great ar- 
tists, it is only necessary to point out that the Thompson endowment 
makes it possible for you to hear them at a minimum expense. To those 
whose musical connoisseurship is more limited, we suggest that you make 
the experiment of listening to a few such concerts and of following them 
up with the use of the Whiteman Library facilities. No man can con- 
sider himself educated until he has exposed himself to music. A real 
appreciation of music is about the closest the human race has come to 
finding a short-cut to happiness. 


,\ comparison of Harvard before and after the introduction of the 
■o; I ' ehensive examination will go far to relieve the anxiety of the local 
"g -.a pigs" who are facing this test in the not too distant future. 

In the space of twelve years, the percentage of men graduating with 
honors has risen from 2L6 to 37%. 

More than half of the undergraduates are now candidates for degrees 
with honor, while the number of candidates for the added distinction of 
graduation with "special honors" has doubled. 

That the undergraduate of average ability has not suffered is indi- 
cated by reduction in the number of men dropping out from 8% to 6%. 

Says Dean A. C. Hanford: "There seems little doubt that the most 
important single factor in stimulating greater intellectual activity among 
the undergraduates has been the influence of the general examinations 
and the tutors." 

With the Hopkins endowment making it possible for an increase in 
the faculty to go hand in hand with the introduction of comprehensives, 
we hope and expect that Williams will show a similar improvement in 
academic accomplishment, and a minimum of difficulty in making the

That Iran's in again. 
'Way back last Spring, most of us will 
remember the celebrated anti-Hearst 
drive, instigated by dynamic Ray Mc- 
Connell. The former giant-killer's self- 
styled anathema had a little too vigorous 
an armament policy in his newsreels for 
McConnell, and hence the celebrated 
Walden Boycott. 

This year Cat King found himself in a 
neat dilemma. Having declared that 
undergraduates would withhold their pa- 
tronage! if Hearst newsreels were shown 
here, Cal pretty well cut off this limb from 
under himself. And then he discovered 
that the best Princeton-Williams football 
game pictures were taken by those nasty 
Fascist photographers. And so, keeping 
on every one's good side, he has managed 
the impossible— he has reconciled his 
Boston distributors, and has been al- 
lowed to show the action shots without the 
rest of the propagandistic menu. 

As a matter of fact, the newsreels turned 
out by the Lord of San Simeon's aggre- 
gation are about the best there are, when- 
ever the Brisbanish remarks of the com- 
mentator can be stifled. And then it's 
always seemed to us that we ought to have 
enough stoicism to take the chaff with 
the grain in an instance like this. 

This comment is only applicable to 
the newsreel situation, however. As a 
rabid Republican, we are more than ordi- 

narily embarrassed by the patronage of 
Hearst in Mr. Landon's cause. The 
Chautauqua speech was about theonlyanti- 
Hearst peep we have heard from the anti- 
Roosevelt standard-bearer. We hope a 
few peace-minded Republican committee 
members will be able to get a little more 
satisfaction for us, even if this criticism 
of our over publicized publicist is restricted 
to a vigorous attack on the Hearst foreign 
policy, with all its large armament, anti- 
.Japanese fol-de-rol. 

A Mugwump? 

What is Presidential Candidate Lan- 
don's foreign policy? Does he know any- 
thing about foreign affairs? What is his 
knowledge of trade agreements, the recip- 
rocal trade agreement etc.? What is his 
stand on armaments? These and count- 
less other questions are being asked today, 
even by good Republicans— mainly be^ 
cause, Governor Landon and his col- 
leagues have been conspicuously silent 
anent them in the present vitriolic cam- 

If one knows no further than that 
Landon would probably use "good judg- 
ment and common sense" in these matters, 
it is liable to result in the loss of a few 
million hesitant votes who consider, and 
rightfully so, the Presidency of America 
as a power in world affairs. A statement 
as to how he stands on armament, the 
war debt, "hands off" policies, America's 
position with Japan, and on the peace 
question would at least solve a dilemma 
in the far-flighted American voter's mind. 
A yes or no on these questions is better 
either way than unaccountable silence. 

Sex and Despairing of the routine meth- 
Politics ods of arousing the campus, 
Rooseveltian Goldman lias 
sought the spiritual assistance of his Ben- 
nington co-patriots, according to late 
rumors. Local Republicans of note were 
at first a bit worried at the whole thing, 
inasmuch as a few of their Hill favorites 
would be involved in such a move, we have 
heard. The whole business tell through, 
though, when the feminine pro-Adminis- 
tration bloc declined to co-operate. 

The reasons for this are two-fold, we de- 
duce. First, the Benningtonites fear a 
town versus gown fracas if they are too 
spoken against Vermont's heavy favorite 
landon. And secondly, of course, Presi- 
dent Leigh's charges prefer to visit Wil- 
liamstown in a social, and not political, 
capacity. So it seems that the campus 
Democrats will have to be satisfied with 
some sort of silent communion. 

As a matter of fact, Bennington's em- 
phasis on positive personalities has turned 
out even more radical than our Roosevel- 
tians had hoped for, if our latest news is 
accurate. Two large Browder posters, in 
red-ink, replete with the familiar hammer 
and sickle insignia, adorn conspicuous 
spots in the Hill schcol's central Adminis- 
tration Building. New England's famed 
experimental college has turned into a lab- 
oratory of political thought on tlie opposite 
end of the sca'e from Terre Haute as far as 
the U. S. branch of the Third Interna- 
tionale is concerned. We haven't heard 
whether Forsythes or Spivaks have turned 
up yet, but we wager they're in the 

In the meanwhile, watch the Democrats 
go by. Heil Roosevelt! 


Walk The temptation to do a "Thoughts 
While Strolling" with plenty of 
apologies to Old Odd and dedicated loving- 
ly to Spring Street overcame us 't'other 
day. Gawking at the lonely drummer bar- 
ricaded very much solo behind shining 
raiments in the sample room ne took men- 
tal note of what the well dressed man will 
and won't wear, and wondered just why 
some of these city slickers come up here, 
anyway. Answer: to sell clothes. Any- 
how, they get a good long chance to see the 
leaves turn. In the-Cym Lunch someone 
put a nickel in the victrola, while Louie 
drew one and explained that it wasn't ex- 
actly a gold mine, — seems that some com- 
pany pays the boys rent or something and 
herds the buffaloes themselves. Bun 
wasn't on, so the change was merely 
handed to us instead of being smartly 
bounced over the counter, — spectacular, 
that, and lots of fun. 

The St. Pierre brothers were saying "so 
long, Joe" to a departing sophomore and 
we looked in the window to see if our one 
friend was waiting for sheer barbarism ; he 
wasn't in there but still needs a haircut, to 
our way of thinking. We can't resist 
looking in that window every time we go 
by, even if only to see the cover on the new- 
American Magazine". As usual we 
owed the House of Walsh some money and 
walked in in order to "consolidate our 
position" as they say in History 5-6. "Yes 
sir, Joe, that's the best fit I ever saw!" 
Phil was saying to a prospective customer. 
"Doesn't it look nice on Joe, Tom?" "Yes 
sir!" replied Tom (we knew that was com- 
ing!) Anyway, Tom and Phil very 
obligingly compromised wiUi us on our 
temporary financial embarrassment (Never 
mind how much it was. Junior!) and we 
walked out a^in feeling free and white, — 
well, pretty white, anyway. Not being in 
a woodsy or outdoorish mood we shunned 
Bemis' (we always were afraid the wicked- 
looking guns in the window would go 
"boom" some day. Why not today?) and 
spent our last nickel on an ice cream cone 
in the Hart of pharmacy; as usual we 
didn't have the free drink, — not much hone 
either unless things take a decided turn for 
the better (Dammit, our political prefer- 
ences are our own business!) 

Afterthought: if we ever got a free 
breakfast in the Gym Lunch how would we 
ever get up in t'me to know about it? 


Flickers Darryl Zanuck's Twentieth Cen- 
tury film outfit has turned out 
one of the best entries in this year's late- 
season drive for supremacy in Hollywood's 
light-comedy derby, combining William 
Powell and Carole Lombard in a bit of 
hilarious sophistication titled My Man 
Godfrey. The plot is a neat rewriting of 
the old situation play, where a blue-blood,

dence in a new girl and winds up on the top

Tlie economic dilenimu is also more 
liliely to approaci' a sane solution under 
Roosevelt. Heavy taxes and excessive 
irovernmental renulatioii doul)tle8H hamper 
productive entorprise. But it is liam-

Wlietlier Landon would continue sucli

unwittingly fostered monopoly by the 
unhappy experiment of the N.R.A., is now 
conmiitted to restricting monopoly and 
encouraging that freedom of competition 
and enterprise without which capitalistic 
economy cannot survive. 

Mr. I/iindon also condemns monopoly, 
but his business supporters render it im- 
probable that words would be translated 
into deeds on this score. In short, the

promoted by a continuation of a modified

"New Deal" than by a return to power of 
the Republican Party. 

It is in the field of foreign |)olicy, how- 
ever, that I find the most com))elling 
reasons for voting Democratic. Peace 
and pro8|)erity for America are de|)endcnt 
upon a restoration of foreign markets and 
upon coo|)eration with other Powers for 
the prevention or restriction of war. 
This proposition is so obvious tliat it has 
not hitherto l)een made a partisan issue. 

But this year the Republican platform 
specifically condemns both tlie League of 
Nations and the World Court and simul- 
taneously favors "arbitration" and 
"lieace", both of which are meaningless 
without organized procedures and in- 
stitutions to give them reality. It i)ro- 
poses to collect the war debts (the metliod 
is not set forth) and paradoxically pro- 
poses to make payment impossible by 
raising tariffs and repealing the Reciprocal 
Trade Agreement Act. 

This plank, if carried out, would once 
more destroy markets for American goods 
abroad and would return tariff-making to 
the hog-trough and log-rolling era. The 
Roosevelt administration has made the 
United Stat«s a member of the Inter- 
national Ijibor Organization, attempted 
to make the United States a member of the 
World Court (endorsed by all Republican 
candidates before I^andon) and coojjer- 
ated with the lycague up to the point at 
which the I.«ague members ceased to co- 
operate with one another. 

It has to a large degree taken the tariff 
out of politics. Secretary Hull's fourteen 
trade agreements have contributed to the 
increase of American foreign trade from 
$2,935,000,000 in 1932 to $4,280,000,000 
in 1935. The neutrality legislation, to be 
sure, is far from adequate, but it indicates 
a determination to exert every effort to 
keep the United States out of the im- 
pending European war. 

In its platform the Democratic Party 
pledges itself to "guard against being 
drawn by political commitments, inter- 
national banking or private trading into 
any war." The "Good Neighbor" policy, 
and the retreat from imjjerialism are also 
positive contributions to peace. 

On these important issues Mr. Landon 
and his party are silent or evasive. Roose- 
velt, it must be conceded, has created new 
war dangers by challenging Japan (or by 
accepting the Japanese challenge) to a 
naval race and by causing the United 
States, which is more secure from in- 
vasion tlian any other Power, to spend 
over a billion dollars annually on arma- 

But Mr. I^andon would not reverse 
these policies. He has never mentioned 
armaments among the "wastes" he would 
eliminate or reduce as a means of balancing 
the budget. Indeed, arms expenditures, 
plus the subsidies to farmers which he 
would pay to compensate them for the 
loss of the foreign markets which his 
tariff policy would destroy, would make 
budget-balancing all but impossible. 

The proposed Republican policies 
would promote impoverishment and 
war by economic and political iso- 
lationism, would foster American involve- 
ment in European hostilities by permitting 
war profits to business and would appar- 
ently continue the dangerous policy of 
provocation toward Japan. 

In foreign affairs, even more than in 
domestic affairs, Alfred M. I.«ndon and 
his party offer no program which is in 
any way reassuring. I therefore propose 
to vote for Franklin D. Roosevellr.

whistle ended any possibility of con- 
tinuing on the offensive. 

During this second canto, the losers were 
able to gain on play.s straight through the 
line, but the slippery turf iiiude it im- 
possible to negotiate their usually effective 
off-tackle slants with any notable success. 
Ashkanazy, rugged guard, and Fitts, 
stellar Bowdoin winginun, spent a great 
deal of time in the Williams liacktield, 
and during the course of the game nailed 
Eddie Stanley five times before he could 
get up enough momentum to reach the 
line of scrimmage. 

Purple Line Weak 

Early in the game it became obvious 
that the Purple line would have to im- 
prove its charge in order to hold the 
Bowdoin onslaught, since the Polar Bears' 
star hacks. Reed and Captain .Sawyer, 
had not yet seen any action. Karsokas, 
Frye, and Melendy, all first-year varsity 
men, had displayed sufficient ability to 
match anything that Caldwell's line had 
to ofTer. 

After the half-time intermission, it 
could be seen that Bowdoin was fighting 
an inspired battle and that the vaunted 
Purple could make no consistent gains. 
The two weary teams battled on even 
terms through the third quarter, Williams 
showing some of its reputedly strong de- 
fensive ability, repulsing sustained Polar 
Bear drives within the twenty-yard line. 
Defense Braces 

The defenses had braced considerably, 
but the Purple attack did not come close to 
matching this improvement. I.ate in the 
period, Eddie Stanley took a punt on his 
ow*h twenty, and on the first off-tackle 
play following the runback, placed the 
ball just short of midfield. However, 
three line bucks failed, and Bowdoin re- 
covered on 11 holding penalty on foiu'th 

Williams continued to fight off the 
Bowdoin offensive, and were deep in their 
own territory in the fourth when ,Iack 
Eeed, who had just entered the fray, took 
Doug Stearns' punt on the fifty-yard 
Stripe, scooted over to the right sideline, 
and, aided by excellent blocking, crossed 
the goal line standing up for the winning 
tally. Cai)tain Sawyer entered the game

Harriers Bow To 
R.P.I. Team, 17-38 

Engineers Cover Distance in Fast 

Time as Finish Is Marked 

By Quadruple Tie 

Running over a soggy Taconic course, 
the Purple harriers were overwhelmingly 
defeated in their initial meet of the season 
by a superior R. P. I. contingent Sat- 
urday l)y a score of 17-38. Four Engi- 
neers crossed the finish line hanil in hand 
in a first ])lace tie, a hundred-odd yards 
in front of Bill Collens, first Williams man 
to tally, in 22 minutes and 32 seconds, 
fast time considering the condition of the 
ruin-drenched course. 

Sure of themselves the entire race, the 
visitors had it all their own way, four 
of their men taking the lead from Bay 
Kiliani and Johnny Marshall soon after 
they were started on the l.ab campus by 
Doc Seeley, former Purple track coach. 
Stepping fur out uhead, Hitchcock, 
Giesker, Dugan, who finished in a triple 
tie for first in handing C.C.N.Y. u 21-34 
defeat last week, and Toole, captain of the 
Engineers, held their |x)sitions the re- 
maining three miles, nuining easily and 
never being threatened. 

From this jioint on, the contest was 
unexciting, with Collens and Kiliuni lead- 
ing the rest of the pack stretched out far 
behind. There were no individual duels 
the runners maintaining their same 
positions the whole distance, evidently 
played out by the springy dampness of 
the golf course. 

Rounding the last turn on Weston 
field, Hitchcock, Giesker, Dugan, and 
Toole, who had not varied the distance 
separating them by several yards, joined 
hands and repeated last Saturday's per- 
formance by again ending the race in a tie, 
a minute and 28 seconds behind the course 
record of 20 minutes, 54 seconds held 
by Dave Gregory, lust year's Williams 
distance stylist. 

Trailing them were Bill Collens and Bay 
Kiliani, followed by Koopman, another 
R.P.I, runner. Don Brown was the next 
to cover the distunce, with two more 
visitors crossing the line simultaneously. 
Johnny Marshall, who showed up well 
in early time trials but whose legs 
tighteneil u]) soon after the beginning of 
the contest, limped in shortly with Art 
Stanwood and Brad Adams. 

The order of finish was as follows: 1st, 
Hitchcock (RPl) Giesker (RPI), Dugan 
(RPI), Toole (RPI), tied; 5th, Collens 
(W); 6th, Kihani (W); 7th, Koopman

to place-kick the extra point but failed 
to convert. 

Latvris Recovers Fumbles 
In the closing minutes, when all hope 
was vanished, Mike Latvis recovered 
Karsokas' fumble on the Bowdoin thirty- 
five, but the Polar Bears tightened and 
turned back the threatened offensive. 
From this point, it was a question as to 
Bowdoin ability to score again, for they 
took the ball on one march from their 
own twenty to the Williams thirty, ripping 
off ten and fifteen yard gains through the 
demoralized Purple line. Williams man- 
aged to punt out of danger, but, as the 
game ended, was valiantly staving off a 
last Bowdoin thrust on the three-yard line.

Freshman Football Team 
Upset by Middlebury, 7-0 

(Continued from First Page) 
visitors' 35-yard line. Here Pete Mc- 
Carthy took the ball three times out of 
four, advancing the ball to the 24-yard 
stri|)e for a first down. However Middle- 
bury tightened, after the yearlings picked 
up three yards, and thwarted a pass attack, 
led by Ray Kirk, by knocking down two 
aerials intended for Brad Wood ami Bob 
Cramer. Poor generalship prevented Wil- 
liams from another opportunity of scoring 
when u ])ass was ordered on third down 
with one yard to go on Middlebury's 38- 
yard marker. 

Brad Wood, acting captain, Dud Head, 
und Walt Mitchell stood out for Williams 
on the defense, completely bottling up the 
visitor's running attack. Mahoney, Mid- 
dlebury quarterback, with his brilliant 
punts und siiectacular run-bucks wus the 
outstanding player on the fiehl. Dun Dunn, 
Pete McCarthy, and l{ay Kirn starred 
on the offensive for the home team. 
Deerfield Wins at Soccer 

A small speedy forward line was re- 
sponsible for Deerfield's vii^tory over the 
Freshman soccer squad in a hunl-fouglit 
game on Cole Field. Richards, the visitors' 
center forward, scoreil the goal of the game 
toward the end of the third quarter in a 
mix-uj) in front of the net. Throughout 
the game the purple forwards were storm- 
ing tlie Green und White's goal, l)ut could 
not find the funge. Statistics show that 
Henry Lainmerts had (miy two saves to 
his credit, while Jordan, the visitors' net 
tender, had over a dozen. 

Pete ,Shonk stood out for Williams by his 
defensive play, while Ned Levering, ucting 
captain, Woody Thomson, Myles Fox, and 
Bill Budington kept the bull in Deerfield's 
territory most of the gume. Brad Hig- 
gins, (he visitors' ca|)tuin, re|)ulsed many 
attacks on his goal by his brilliant de- 
fensive play. Richards und Burgess stnrred 
on the offense for the Green and White. 


Down East 

The hard-lighting football 
men of Bowdoin very defin- 
itely siieured all hopes of the 
Ephmen for the 1931) small college crown 
in New Kngland. The Purple loss, udmin- 
istered by what seems to be a truly weaker 
team, wus a distinct disaiipointinont to 
every Williams follower. Any defeat is to 
be hard felt, but with this most recent 
downfall there comes a blessing in disguise. 
It disiielled very decisively the feeling of a 
great many S(Uiud members that all they 
had to do each season was to go down and 
make a good showing against Princeton 
und the rest of the schedule would tuke 
care of itself. This myth is exploded, we 
hope, once and for all. The big games lie 
ahead und, if they arc to be won, the Wil- 
liams team must shake off the heavy

Mount Moosaulauke in the Frani'onia

this week-end by the Intercollegiate Out- 
ing Club Association, 

With the Dartmouth Outing Club, 
founders of the association, simnsoring the 
affair, participants from thirteen member 
clubs, including Brown, Dartmouth, Har- 
vard, Middlebury. Skidmore, Smith, Vas- 
sar, and Yale met at Warren, N. H., with 
Spy-Glass Hill as their base camp for the 

Since rapid times in n^aching various 
peaks in the range were being tried for, no 
cumbersome packs were carried, and all re- 
turned to the base camp after the day's 
climb. Scenic beauties of the region, and 
certain new ski trails were also investi- 
gated by the various parties. 

While Outing Club members concern 
themselves at present with Fall hiking, 
work is being carried on by Coach Jim 
Parker at Sheep Hill toward the comple- 
tion of the new ski tow, but because of the 
inclement weather of the past week, little 
progress has been made. Mr. Arthur 
Rosenberg, owner of the property on which 
the tow is being built, has been plowing 
and dragging the several hundred feet of 
land up which the tow will operate, in 
order to make the run as smooth as possible. 

According to a recent announcement by 
the coach, the pulleys and their founda- 
tions have been installed, while work on the 
shelter which will house the engine is nearly 

comijlclcd. Though a few snow flurries 
may permit a trial of the apparatus before 
the Christmas vacation, it is not ex|)ected 
that active use will start until January.

Overcome Statesmen, 3-0

hold the opposition scoreless until their 
own offense started to click. A pass from 
John Harris to Howie Sheble saw the 
varsity draw first l)lood, just two minutes 
before the first period ended. 

Almost an identical repetition of this 
first score occurred in the closing minutes 
of the first half when Huff Hadley, who 
played an outstandinR game at left half, 
drove a free kick far into the enemy's ter- 
ritory which was converted by Dave Close 
after a scramble in front of the Maroon and 
White's goal. The final score was made 
in the third period after numerous shots 
had been missed in front of the Statesman 
goal. Farny Fowle at inside left took a 
pass at midfield from the halfback line and 
tallied unassisted in a melee in front of the 
visitors' net. 

The booters from State, despite their 
scoring threat in the first period, lacked the 
necessary punch to defeat Coach BuUock's 
forces. It was evident that they were not 
playing as well as they did when they 
defeated Worcester Tech 7-4, and they did 
not show the power which held Amherst to 
a 5-5 tie in a recent practice session. The 
Statesman were evidently handicapped by 

theinjury which kept Captain Joe Kennedy, 
last year's All-American halfback, on the 
sidelines most of the contest. 

Captain Gray Larkum and Frank Davis, 
outstanding at the fullback positions, 
repeatedly repulsed potential State scores 
after Cain, Osley, and Rodda managed to 
pass the ball deep into Williams territory. 
The hard driving halfback line of Turner 
Blake, Huff Hadley, and Dave Close de- 
serve much credit for their brilliant offen- 
sive and defensive play. Dave Johnston 
maintained his shutout record by his spec- 
tacular net play, proving himself too much 
for the driving shots ot the opponents for- 
ward line.

discouraged as a good score this Saturday 
will serve as a great bracer. However, 
since there are almost fifty men entered, 
the column has delved through the Foot- 
ball Guide to dig up some tough battles to 
cut the list down. Contestants are ad- 
vised to keep their own averages as space 
prevents printing an entire tally sheet. In 
the future we may also want to announce 
the dropping of men below a certain per- 
centage due to the impossibility of their

Josef Hofmann Recital 
At Keyboard Tonight To

Hall Program 

Pianist Said to Be Exceptional Source 
Of Instruction for All Music Students 

'Singing Tone', Tiny 'Perfect Piano 

Hands' Helped Concertist to 

World-Wide Fame 

By Francis Boardman, Jr. '38 

Friday, October 23— Josef Hofmann will 
face the keyboard of his special piano in 
Chapin Hall tonight at 8.30 p. m. to open 
the newest Thompson Concert series. 
Jesse L. Bojmton '38, Treasurer of the 
undergraduate committee which arranged 
the concert, announced today that a 
capacity audience would attend the recital 
of the master whose half a century of con- 
cert play has won him world wide fame. 
Unreserved seats are on sale at the door. 

It is typical of Hofmann that he should 
select principally the works of great com- 
posers for tonight's program, for It is well 
known that he seldom ventures out of the 
field of classic piano compositions. With 
rure ability he can "recreate the wonder of 
old masterpieces" and add the "singing 
tone" with such success that afttr thou- 
sands of concerts (more than he can re- 
member) he is stilt with a comparatively 
small repertoire and still at the p'ak of 
his career. Feehng that "there Is only 
gdod and bad music" and that no modern 
composer ranks with those of the past, 
Hofmann has chosen a program comprised 
of works of Chopin, Beethoven, Haydn, 
Schumann, Rachmaninoff, Liszt, and 
Albeniz-Godowsky. He will also play 
his own composition, Berceuse. 
Hofmann's Tone Noted 

A tone of incomparable quality will be 
heard at this evening's recital. It is a 
tone of which Samuel Chotzinoff, of the 
New York Post once wrote, "the piano is 
no longer a percussion instrument, but a 
living voice of amazing tonal beauty and of 
infinite resources. In the most literal 
sense, the piano under Mr. Hofmann, 
sings. Now it is a rich baritone that fills 
the hall, now a fuUblooded and mag- 
nificent contralto. The illusion of a 
singer's kgaio is always present, and 
tliere are momenta when tones seem ac- 
tually to dissolve into other tones." 

Of particular interest to the program will 
he the sight of the concertist's "perfect

Francis Boardman '38 Assumes 
Newly Made News Bureau Post 

In a reorganization designed to meet 
growing responsibilities of the Williams 
News Bureau, Francis Boardman, Jr. '38 
was appointed Thursday night to the 
newly created position of General News 
Editor. Boardman, who has been a staff 
member of the News Bureau for three 
years, will assume his new duties at once, 
which will Involve taking over certain of 
the administrativedutiesordinarily handled 
. l)y Edward J. Michelson '37, President of 
the Bureau. 

Because of the appointment, Boardman 
has resigned his post as Associate Editor 
of The Williams Record, to which he 
was elected last spring. At the time of 
resignation he was in a competition for the 
Managing Editor post of the paper. 

The new position was primarily insti- 
tuted to Increase the efficiency of the 
News Bureau, which is in charge of sending 
all Williams news to the outside press, 
serving fifteen newspapers and three press 
services. It is also designed to spread the 
administrative load, giving junior mem- 
bers experience in actual supervision of the 
organization's activities. 

In line with the new policy Boardman 
will take charge of assigning non-athletic 
coverage, while John C. Jay '38 will be re- 
sponsiblelfor the handling of S'ports news. 
Otherwise there is no change, Michelson 
holding his presidential post, while Wil-

Brown Soccer Eleven To 
Meet Purple Team Today 

Unscored on Williams Booters to 

Battle Undefeated Bruins 

On Cole Field 

Two undefeated soccer teams will battle 
to keep their records clean this afternoon 
on Cole Field, when the unscored upon 
Williams eleven engages the hard-charging 
Brown team, currently ranked as one of 
the most powerful units in Eastern asso- 
ciation football. The Bruins come to 
Williamstown fresh from a 2-0 victory 
over Dartmouth and Intent upon adding a 
defeat to the record of Coach "Uncle Ed" 
Bullock's booters who have downed both 
Hamilton and Mass. State by 3-0 scores 
on successive Saturdays. 

The Purple team will enter the fray 
this afternoon with but one change in the 
line-up which has started both of the 
games to date. Elmer Stowell, two year 
veteran fullback, will return to action 
replacing Kelso Davis aa a running mate 
to Captain Gray Larkum ind adding 
strength to the WilliamS| defense with his 
long, sure-footed kicks, i 

Practice on Fundamentals 

Appreciating the fact that Brown will 
bring a more experienced and harder 
playing squad to Cole Field than his men 
have had to face so far this year. Coach 
Bullock has devoted the week to two long 
scrimmages on Monday and Thursday 
to toughen up his players and the rest 
of the practice sessions to drills on 
fundamentals in order to eliminate the 
number of fouls called against the Pur- 
ple last week. Although none of these 
penalties have ended In scores as yet, a 
goal scored on a penalty by a husthng team 
like Brown, might easily prove the margin 
of victory and chalk up a mark on the 
wrong side of the Purple ledger. 

Another fault which Bullock has tried 
to overcome this week, is the slowness

Williams Harriers to Encounter 
Average Middlebury Team Today 

Hoping to make up for last week's defeat 
at the hands of R. P. I., the Purple harriers 
will meet a mediocre Middlebury cross 
country team on the Taconic course Satur- 
day at 12. ' Coach Tony Pknsky asserted 
that Williams, looking stronger than last 
week, had an even chance to beat the visi- 
tors, who, like the Purple, have lost several 
good men. 

Building its team out of almost entirely 
new material, Middlebury seems much 
weaker than last week's Engineer team. 
In their single meet of the season so far, 
they were beaten by Union 15-40, and will 
arrive In Williamstown Friday so as to run 
the difficult Taconic course in a practice 

Only one change has been made in last 
Saturday's line-up, with I^ou Brooks tak- 
ing the place of Brad Adams. Otherwise 
Plansky intends to run Captain Art Stan- 
wood, Bill CoUens, Don Brown, Ken Hood, 
Johnny Marshall, and Bay Klliani as be- 
fore, Jim Gregory being still out with an in- 
jured foot. While there have been no 
time trials this week, Plansky has concen- 
trated especially on distance work, combin- 
ing this with a little sprinting practice. 

Time for Writing 


Friday, October 234- William N. C. Carl- 
ton, College Librarian for fifteen years, an- 
nounced today his Intention to retire in 
June 1938 when it jlvas learned that the 
Trustees had granted him a one year leave 
of absence which cpmmences this June. 
No successor has be«n named. 

His administrative duties having re- 
stricted the time which he could devote to 
authorship. Dr. Carlton asked for leave of 
absence in order to complete his biography 
of Madame Thallieii which he started in 
1931 during his sabbatical leave. Once he 
has completed this study of a noted French 
Revolutionary charajeter, he intends to set 
down a study of the modem American 
faculty. Dr. Carlton has observed a num- 
ber of losses and gains in the present situa- 
tion of college faculties during years of 
contact with teachers, and hopes to print 
them as the first serious investigation of 
the problem to appear in book-form. 
Published Many Articles 

The Librarian has had time for but one 
full length book during his service at Wil- 
liams. In 1930, Pauline — Favorite Sister 
of Napoleon won him wide literary fame. 
During the past thirty years he has had 
published more than 2000 encyclopedia ar- 
ticles, most of them biographies. The old 
New York Tribune and the New York 
Evening Post have carried a number of his 
book-reviews while more than a dozen 
periodicals. Including The Bookman, and 
Literary Review have also received his con- 
tributions. In 1927-28, he served as 
Editor of the AmeriJsSn Cotttetar. 

At the age of fifteen, William Carlton 
was an assistant in the Public Library at 
Holyoke and at nineteen. In 1892, he com- 
menced a seven year term as Assistant

Experience has taught the truth in the

with the result that the eyes of every fol- 
lower of the football fortunes of Williams 
College will be centered on Weston Field 
today when the faltering Ephmen engage a 
strong Jumbo outfit, fresh from an impres- 
sive 18-0 victory over Colby, at 2.00 p. m. 
Chances for a successful season will hang In 
the balance along with Purple prestige, 
and one of the best contests of the current 
year is in the offing. 

In a determined attempt to check the 
stumbhng footsteps of his present aggrega- 
tion. Coach Charlie Caldwell may send a 
completely revamped line-up against the 
Brown and Blue. Only four men can be 
sure of starting positions in the drastic 
shake-up that may tell the story of success 
or failure for the 1936 campaign. Fielding 
Simmons, now only two touchdowns be- 
hind the leading scorer of the East, will 
once more be carrying the brunt of the 
Purple offensive, while Captain Danny 
Lewis at center, Dick Colman at guard, 
and the dependable Mike Latvis at end 
will also hold down first team posts when 
the opening whistle blows.

Schuman Discouraged At 
Prospects for Liberalism 

Fascism, Communism Cannot Solve 

World Problem He Tells 

Liberal Club 

A prophecy that Liberalism will soon be 
extinguished unless its friends act together 
in International co-operation to combat 
Fascism was made Wednesday by Pro- 
feBsor Frederick L. Schuman, lecturer 
and authority on international relations, 
speaking on "Prospects of European 
Liberalism" at the first Liberal Club meet- 
ing of the year in Jesup Hall: 

Defining Liberalism briefly as "Belief 
In government by talk", Dr. Schuman 
traced the many setbacks it has received 
in the last few years from the actions of 
Italy, Germany, and Japan. The main 
reason for this, the speaker said, was the 
fact that it is difficult for people with 
empty stomachs to remain tolerant and 
reasonable. Although he admitted that 
he had come to the "gloomy conclusion" 
that Liberalism has a multitude of prob- 
lems facing it. Dr. Schuman said that 
ultimate success is possible "if the world 
is able to eliminate international conflicts 
and mitigate economic maladjustments." 
Liberalism Is Way Out 

The lecturer gave special attention to 
the answers given by Liberalism, Com- 
munism, and Fascism to the problems of 
war and economic depression. Neither 
Communism's solution — institution of pub- 
lic ownership on a world-wide scale — 
nor Fascism's answer — organization of 
business and industry on the basis of pri- 
vate monopoly supported and subsidized 
by the government — are the right ones, the 
speaker asserted. There is only one key 
to the problem, he said, and that is 
Liberalism, which holds that we must 
attempt to inaugurate on an interna- 
tional scale "freedom to talk", as is now 
partially represented by the League of 
Nations. "Only Liberalism offers a way 
out of our dilemma, inadequate as that 
way may be," Dr. Schuman said. "No 
other answer could be offered." 

Discussing the present international 
outlook the speaker declared that 
Liberalism Is so fearful of the possibilities 
of war that It will not raise a finger against 
the growing encroachments of Fascism, 
although he prophesied that the day will 
come when Liberalism will be obliged to 
resist Its foe. Dr. Schuman pointed out 
the very paradoxical situation now exists 
ing In Europe, with Russia, a non-Liberal 
country, the only nation willing to resist 
the rising tide of Fascism in Spain, while 
the liberal countries of England and 
France stand fearfully aside. 

Forum Meeting Cancelled 

The Forum meeting originally sched- 
uled for Stmday evening has been can- 
celled because those in charge of ar- 
rangements were unable to obtain 
suitable speakers. 

Virgima Binns, Barbara Ely, Professors 
Beach and Allen Talk (o Partisan Rally 

Mt. Holyoke Students Explain Why 

They Are for Roosevelt as 

Hecklers Cavort 

By Austin Broadhurst '38 

Cheers and boos punctuated the efforts 
of the several orators at the Democratic 
rally Thursday evening when the Misses 
Virginia Binns and Barbara Ely endeav- 
ored to show why "Mt. Holyoke is for 
Roosevelt" followed by Professor Walter 
E. Beach's economic analysis of the New- 
Deal and Professor Samuel E. Allen's re- 
marks on the lag In Williams undergradu- 
ate thought behind that of Harlem. Nearly 
half of the audience, originally numbering 
about 100, left after Miss Bintis concluded 
her address. 

Sunflowers predominated in the audi- 
ence which was more Republican than 
Democratic in sympathy while the stage 
and front of Jesup Hall Auditorium pre- 
sented two American flags and a dozen 
pictures of "A Gallant Leader — Roose- 
velt". Irving Goldman '37, chairman of 
the campus Democratic Committee, pre- 
sided over the session which brought four- 
teen new members into the Democratic 
Club and six volunteers to speak in Berk- 
shire County, one of whom boasted a I^an- 
don pin but said he "could do fine for 

Hecklers Interrupt Meeting 

Hecklers confined themselves for the 
most part, to partisan yells during tlie vari- 
ous addresses although an undergraduate 
rudely interrupted Miss Ely, the first 
speaker, in the early stages of her remarks 
by parading through the hall bearing cray- 
onned placards emblazoned with "LAN- 
DON" and "Down With Roosevelt" while 
during Professor Allen's talk he was fre- 
quently drowned out by loud shouts of 
"We Want Landon" and "Down With 
Roosevelt" wafted into the hall from the 
sidewalk where departed Republicans were 
concluding their celebration. Mr. Allen 
declared that be could find but little men- 
tion of Ijindon in his perusal of a freshman 
political essay and of a recent Republican 
article in The Record by a member of the 
government department.

Propaganda of Five Political 

Parlies on Display in Library 

A varied and comprehensive display of 
political propaganda, including such differ- 
ent types of campaign literature as books, 
pamphlets, flyers, periodicals, and car- 
toons, is now being shown in the Stetson 
Library. Collected by Miss Ethel Rich- 
mond, Reference Librarian, the exhiliit has 
material supplied by the Democratic 
National Committee, the Republican 
National Committee, the First Voter's 
League, the Communist, Socialist, and 
Union Parties, and the various state cam- 
paign committees. 

A collection of souvenirs of the Re- 
publican National Convention has been 
loaned by Dr. Orvcn R. Altman, who was 
an honorary assistant sergeant-at/-arms at 
the Republican convention last June. 
Two scrapbooks Illustrating the cam- 
paign have been loaned by David E. 
Saunders '39, while various documents 
have been contributed by other members 
of the student body. 

Among the more interesting propaganda 
on the Republican side is a Webster cai^ 
toon showing Caspar Milquetoast bolting 
his office door, pulling down the window 
shades, and cautiously looking around 
before he slips Into an envelope a five- 
dollar contribution to the Republican 
Campaign Committee. Also of Interest 
are two tesbags attached to a label, which 
declares "Remember the Boston Tea 
Party! Taxation without representation 
is un-American."

TiiK HEfOHi) announces with regret the resignation of Francis 
Boardman, Jr. as Associate Editor. Cadwalhider Evans, III has been 
appointed by the Board of lOditors to fill the vacant position. 


For nearly fifteen years, William Newnham Chattin Carlton has been 
Librarian in the Franci.s Lynde Stetson Memorial Library. He has 
recently announced that he will end his distinguished ac ive career by 
retiring in June, 19.38, following a year's leave of absence effective in June, 

Williams College has been enriched by Mr. Carlton's contributions. 
During his term of office the number of bound volumes in the College 
Library has been augmented by over 55,000, and the number of unbound 
books, pamphlets, and miscellaneous publications has enjoyed a corre- 
t ponding A lifetime dedicated to eliminating the red tape 
which has made college libraries unpopular has at last been rewarded by 
concrete results, which show a marked increase in the number of students 
using the library facilities since 1922. 

In addition to his local prominence, Mr. Carlton has gained national 
distinction as a librarian among librarians. He has been a prolific con- 
tributor to the Eucyclopedia Britannica and various periodicals, and has 
also achieved a reputation as a biographer and bibliographer. 

Following his actual retirement, which takes place this June, Mr. 
Carlton will commence work on a little known subject which has always 
held his interest — namely, the study of American college faculties over the 
past thirty years. We trust that the ties he has made in fifteen years 
will induce Mr. Carlton to conduct his "busman's holiday" of research 
in the ibrary for whose recent development he is largely responsible. 

Professor Moritz J. Bonn Will 
Deliver Lecture on Economics 

"The Disintegration of World Eco- 
nomics" will be the 8ul)ject of a talk to be 
delivered Monday evening at 8.00 p. m. in 
.lesup Hall l>y the distinguished lecturer on 
world economies, Professor Moritz .1. 
Bonn. The lecture will he under the 
auspices of the College's Department of 
Economics in coojjeration with the Insti- 
ture of International Education. 

Formerly Rector of the Handelshoch- 
sehule in Berlin and at the present Lecturer 
in Economics at the Ix)ndon School of 
Economics, Professor Boon was Acting 
Professor of Economies at the Universities 
of California, Wisconsin and Cornell. In 
1924 he lectured at the Institute of Politics 
at Williamstown, and has freqeuntly 
s|)oken at the School of International 
Studies at Geneva. 

At the close of the war Professor Bonn 
hecame adviser to the German Govern- 
ment on reparations. He, through his 
wide experience, is thoroughly conversant 
with the international economic situation.

child-like in size, they travel with appar- 
ently infinite speed and immeasureable 
precision. Deft and jjowerful the fingers are 
like those of the great Padercwski, ab- 
normally short. It is for this reason that 
Hofmann has sent his specially c(mstructed 
Steinway with a reduced keyboard. 

Hofmann has been said by most .critics 
to be an exceptional source of inspiration 
and instruction to music students. Him- 
self a teacher, (at the Curtis Institute in 
Philadelphia) he has expressed his own 
views on the subject, "We are usually to 

analyze ourselves," he says. "What we 
do intuitively, we do intuitively, we rarely 
sto]) to examine. Then along will come a 
student and ask the why and wherefore 
of our unconscious performance, and we 
are required to stop, examine and explain. 
And it helps us to grow in conscious art."

"I hope I am a rational and not an emo- 
tional Democrat," Miss Ely declared in be- 
ginning her remarks. She made no at- 
tempt to show why Mt. Holyoke, with a 
Rejiublican registration of 408 and a Dem- 
ocratic enrollment of only 155, is "for 
Roosevelt" but contrasted the present 
ail ministration with that of Hoover and 
with Governor l.andon's proposals. Slie 
made the points that Republicim tariffs 
were one cause of the agricultural suffering 
and that Roosevelt has si)ent on farm 
relief much less than I.andon says he will; 
that the Roosevelt deficit is lower than 
that of Hoover's last year; that the Re- 
publicans cannot reduce the national debt; 
and that "Roosevelt's sincerity cannot be 

Haniijered by an attack of stammering 
at the close of her prepared speech, Miss 
Binns nevertheless praised Roosevelt for 
his farm, banking, and monetary policies, 
his repeal of the eighteenth amendment, 
and the reciprocal trade agreements, 
l.oud Republican applause at her quota- 
tion with sarcastic intent of many Rejiubli- 
can arguments and at her remarks idjout 
the G.O.P. platform led her to admit that 
"Frankly, I'm getting as much out of this 
as you are." 

Roosevelt's foreign trade policy, his gold 
and monetary policy, and his trend toward 
control of speculation outweigh his eco- 
nomic faults, Dr. Beach declared in his 
analysis. Following the regular speeches, 
the floor was thrown open for questions. 

Propaganda of Political 
Parties Displayed in Library 

(Continued from First Page) 
One of the best Democratic cartoons is 
one showing two Kansas farmers leaning 
against a fence, a dilapidated schoolhouse 
behind them. One asks, "Where's Alf 
today?" and the other replies, "Oh, he's out 
East tellin' the folks about education." 
There are also defenses of "boondoggling" 
and immphlets designed to show the differ- 
ences between Landon's ideas as a Gov- 
ernor and those he advances as a nominee. 
I.«mke has written an article "When I 
Am President", which is shown along with 
a copy of the Communist Daily Worker 
and diatribes against Fascism. Members 
of the college are invited to inspect the 
exhibit, which is located in number 8 
Stetson Library, between the hours of 
four and six daily, until November 3. 

William Carlton, Librarian 
Given Leave of Absence 

(Continued from First Page) 
Librarian of the Watkinson Library of 
Reference in Hartford. For ten years he 
was Librarian of the Newberry Library in 
Chicago. Preceding his appointment as 
the Williams custodian, Dr. Carlton was 
Director of the American Library in Paris, 
Inc. and acting Librarian of the Public Li- 
brary, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. 

The Williams Librarian has seen more 
than 55,000 bound volumes placed on the 
stacks since he took office, there being now 
more than 155,000 bound volumes in the 
Stetson Library. Under his regime, tliere 
has also been a striking increase in tlie 
utilization of the Library by undergradu- 
uates. "The least possible between the 
man and the book," Dr. Carlton's maxim 
as a Librarian, has been noticeably carried 
out for fifteen years. 

William Carlton was born in Gillingham, 
Kent County, England in 1873 and came 
to America at the age of nine. He re- 
ceived his early education at Holyoke 
High School and Mount Hermon, both in 
Massachusetts. He did not attend college, 
but was tutored by the Reverend Samuel 
Hart for seven yedrs. Trinity College, 
where lie was Instructor of English for 
three years, awar^ted .him an honorary 
M.A. in 1902 and J..H.D. in 1915. He 
married Sarah Haycjen, of East Hartford, 
in 1903.

tures the work of Bernie Collier at quarter, 
Fidge Philpott at half, one of the nine 
seniors in the starting line-up, and the 
valuable Rodge Keith, Captain and one of 
the best punters in the game today at full. 
The fourth man in the .lumiio l)ackfield 
will be Tony Spatli, a three year veteran at 
the blocking assignment. 

In the line, which has showed most of its 
strength to date defensively, there will be 
Line Rcdshaw and George liaker, the 
lightest man on the squad, at the wing 
posts, while Kewpie Zinman and Lew 
Kyrios, another man who has been i)laying 
steadily since his So))homi)re year, will 
hold down the starting berths at tackle. 
(Juarding Ace Acerra at center, will be 
.lack Itendall, captain of last season's 
eleven, and either ,)ack Bentley or Bill 
Boyd. Though heavily outweighed by 
the Purjjle forward wall, the Jumbos have 
showed both last Saturday and in their 
opener against Rhode Island, which they 
lost to a more experienced club by the 
count of 7-0, that they could o|)en up the 
necessary holes for long ground gains. 

Starting Backs Uncertain 
Potentially the Williams line is still as 
strong as the highly touted forward wall of 
early season jjractice, but they seem to lack 
the snap to make them click. Ken Palmer 
at tackle is turning in commendalile work, 
but Whoops Siiively must find a running 
mate for him, possibly in .lohnny Stark 
who is again coming fast after a short stay 
on the injured list. The stocky Harry 
Harris may also be one to benefit by Cald- 
well's dissatisfaction and earn a good share 
of Saturday's iluty at the guard position 
not filled by Colman. 

At the end jjosts, Phil Stearns will have 
to share honors with Bol) Buddington and 
.lolinny Abl)erly until the team can hit its 
stride once more, while Latvis appears a 
fixture at the other wing. Bill Stradley, 
Doug Stearns, Fielding Simmons, and 
Moon Duane may again take the field as 
the first Ijackfield, but Timmy King, Larry 
Durrell, Pete Seay, Hank Stanton, and 
Hank Slingerland may very possibly play 
more than half the game, with an outside 
chance that the latter two will draw start- 
ing berths on the strength of their i)assing 

Lew Manly, feeling the Ephmen can be 
beaten only if his outfit "have the funda- 
mentals cold", has been stressing long 
drills climaxed by scrimmages that have 
leftji good detj^ (iuflcertamtx as regards 
liis ov.'i line-up, especially in the backfield 
where P'lilpott and Collier have been the 
spearheads of the rugged Jumbo attack. 
Together with these two men, the work of 
Captain Keith in his role as kicker will be 
what the Pur])le must stop to get back 
into the win column again and clear the 
way for the thirty-second renewal of the 
Amherst classic.

However, the whole policy seems to be a 
bit overdone when introduced or foisted 
upon the Williams football squad by the 
Treasurer's Office ()r the Athletic Asso- 
ciation, whichever has charge of such novel 
ideas. It has recently l)cen brought to 
light by some of the jjlaycrs tlmt every 
man who is a candidate for the team has 
been charged the sum of $2.50 for the use 
of a locker in the Field House during the 
footl)all season. No one is claiming that 
the Puri)le banner should he tainted l)y 
giving the football men any financial ad- 
vantages over their fellow students, but 
it does seem a bit ridiculous when the 
squad has to dig down and pay money for 
the i>rivilege of having locker space for 
street clothes during practice sessions 
that are many times nothing short of 
arduous. The system may he an economic 
one, but it appears as though a liunch of 
boys, who are working two and a half 
hours every day in an effort to have a 
winning team rejiresent Williams College 
and are really serving as the backbone 
of the whole athletic program financially, 
might be spared the irritation of such a 
disgustingly petty expense. 

Caldwell has sliuken his line considerably 
in the hoix! of bolstering the forward wall 
and the whole squad is intent on doing its 
utmost to redeem itself from the Bowdoiti 
holocaust. No predictions are made 
as to the score, but the column will string 
along with the determined Kphmen, in 
the l)elief that they will get hack on the

of the Log had instilled marked enthusiasm 
for an energetic rebirth of the two-year-old 
project which fell into a lethargic state last 
year, it is believed that conditions at the 
present warrant incorporating the organiza- 
tion into the Council itself. 

Something is being offered to the stu- 
dents of the College, in the words of H. 
I^wrence Thompson '37, President of the 
S.A.C., and this, combined with the fact 
that the organization is now energetically 
active on the campus in a drive for new life. 

led the Council to take the measures al- 
ready described. The Log will join the 
ranks of those non-profit making organiza- 
tions on the Council of the S.A.C. which 
number among their members the Liberal 
Club, Adelphic Union, Philosophical Union 
and the Band. 

The same meeting saw action taken in 
allowing students in need of financial aid, 
as well as those at Williams on scholar- 
ships, to apply for positions in the Student 
Bookstore. Although final positions, it 
was announced, are obtained by open 
competition with other undergraduates, 
applicants must see A. V. Osterhout, 
Graduate Manager of Athletics, before 
being permitted to enter the competition.

$55,062.00 Authorized 
By College for Student 
Aid for Year 1936-1937 

Number of Scholarships Sharply 

Declines; Applications Also 

Suffer Drop 

Despite a sharp decline in the number 
of scholarships granted to undergraduates 
lor the first semester of the scholastic 
year 1936-1937, the Trustees of Williams 
College have again budgeted the sum of 
$52,562.00, together with an additional 
working fund of S2,500.00, for the ad- 
vancement of student aid, according to 
a report by Albert V. Osterhout '06, Exec- 
utive Secretary of the Committee on Stu- 
dent Aid. The drop from 152 scholar- 
ships for the first semester of last year to 
1 18 for the corresponding period this year 
was attributed to the lesser number of ap- 
plications, especially in the Freshmen 
iiass where a forty per cent decline was 

Statistics indicate that whereas a year 
ago forty-two members of the class of 1939 
received aid from the College, this semes- 
ter only thirty freshmen hold scholarships, 
a drop of $1,300.00 for this section of the 
undergraduate body. As the number of 
applications have fallen off, the Commit- 
tee on Student Aid has elected to allot to 
certfiin individuals, particularly in the 
Freshman class, an amount sufficient to 
(»ver full tuition rather than cut down on 
the total appropriations. 

No Student Aid Drop Contemplated 

Altogether, the total drop in student 
aid, including the reduced number of re- 
cipients, for the first semester this year 
over the same period a year ago is only 
$3,922.00. According to a statement by 
Mr. Osterhout, the College will not 
slacken their scholarships at future dates, 
but will instead attempt to find more 
men that need help. 

The working fund that has again this 
year been added to the appropriations of 
the Trustees will be used as formerly to 
cover expenses of the Committee on Stu- 
dent Aid incurred while seeking further 
employment for undergraduates needing 
assistance to get through college. At 
present there are at Williams over seventy 
<lifferent ways in which students can earn 
all or part of their tuition, and it is the 
aim of the Committee on Student Aid to 
further those already existing as well as 
create new means for the undergraduate 
l)ody to maintain its financial status. 

Beside the aid given students out of the 
scholarship fund of the College, during the 
liast year $50,150.00 was earned by the 
undergraduate body in extra-curricular 
work and from local positions. All of 
these men were, placed by the Committee 
i>n Student Aid, while loans, usually 
Kranted without security, floated by this 
Committee, brought the total figures on 
financial assistance to undergraduates for 
the year ending June, 1936 to the sum of

Birdsall, T. C. Smith Delegates At 
New England Educators' Meeting 

Deans Paul Birdsall and Theodore 
Clarke Smith represented Williams at the 
78th annual meeting of the Association 
of Colleges in New England held Thursday 
and Friday at Brown University, Provi- 
dence, R. I. Leading educators from 
fourteen colleges and universities attended 
the two-day session for which Williams will 
be host next fall. 

Eight presidents were among the thirty 
delegates at the luncheons and smokers 
which formed the program. College prob- 
lems, administrative and curricular, were 
the subjects of the informal discussions, 
and no addresses as such were delivered. 

Dr. Stanley King and Dr. James L. 
McConaughy, heads of Amherst and Wes- 
leyan respectively, were among the eight 
chief administrators present at the gather- 
ing. Brown, Bowdoin, Middlcbury, Tufts 
Boston University, and Clark were the 
other institutions represented by their 
presidents. Harvard sent Alfred C. Han- 
ford, dean of the College, as a delegate, 
while one of Yale's spokesmen was its 
dean of the College, Clarence W. Mendell. 

It is difficult to present an aggressive*' 
case for an untried candidate for President. 
As in all elections the present incumbent 
has a record of performance behind him 
by which one can decide, in the light of his 
own convictions, whether he will continue 
to place confidence in the man and sup- 
port his reelection. 

We have no such basis for judging his 
opponent, and generally a vote for him is 
an expression of hope that his adminis- 
tration will remedy the errors of his 
predecessor and give us improvement in 
the future. My vote for Mr. Jjandon 
is an expression of confidence in his ability, 
liberalism, and good judgment, and also of 
dissatisfaction with the record of the 
Roosevelt administration. 

Objects to Economic Policies 

I propose, therefore, to express briefly 
why I have ceased to have confidence in 
Mr. Roosevelt. His broken platform 
promises and his partial usurpation of the 
functions of the legislature are very dis- 
tasteful, but my primary objections to 
him are based on his economic policies. 

I heartily approve of certain of his re- 
forms, for example the legislation on 
security issues, security markets, labor 
boards, railroads and his philosophy con- 
cerning the regulation of public utilities, 
thotigh not the legislation enacted. I 
object to what I believe were his major 
economic policies, those dealing with agri- 
culture, industry, recovery, money, and 
finance. My objections to these so far 
outweigh my approval of others that I am 
against the reelection of Mr. Roosevelt. 
Approves Gold Agreement 

The recent tri-partite agreement con- 
cerning gold shipments as a means of set- 
tlinff-'discrcpancies in our intornationa! 
balance of payments and to stabilize 

'foreign exchange relationships through the 
action of stabilization funds has my 
hearty approval, and with modifications, 
I hope to see it established as a permanent 
policy. The road by which we reached 
this objective, however, was very cir- 
cuitous and was made more difficult by 
the obstacles placed in it by the present 

An accord, such as we have now, was 
suggested during the London Economic 
Conference in 1933 by competent experts 
in the field, and had some official support 
in England. Although probably not 
feasible at that time, it was an admirable 
goal toward which to work. Instead the 
U. S. chose an isolationist monetary 
policy, and retarded international sta- 
bility for some years. 

The ill-advised gold buying policy and 
the devaluation of the dollar by an ex- 
cessive amount caused havoc in the world 
monetary situation and brought a storm 
of justifiable invective on us from abroad. 
Our policy disrupted the economic struc- 
ture of the Gold Bloc countries and made 
inevitable their departure from the gold 
standard. It brought a tremendous vol- 
ume of gold to this country which now 
forms the base for a possible credit in- 

Attacks Silver Policy 
In addition, the policy in regard to silver 
can hardly be justified on monetary 
grounds. It is rather a political ex- 
pedient to satisfy the demands of a small 
vested interest who clamored loudly 
enough to obtain a share of gravy. Do- 
mestically it has meant merely wasteful 
spending, but in China and Mexico its 
repercussions have Ijeen of serious con- 
sequence. "^

Williams Captures Third 
Bennington Hockey Game 

'Beasts' Replace 'Ikes and Mikes' 

And Turn Back 'Beauties' 

By S-4 Count 

By Cadwalllader Evans, III '38 

The third chapter of the tragic history 
of Beauty and the Beast, or the local ver- 
sion of the War Between Men and Women 
was enacted Sunday on the playing fields 
of Bennington College when eleven strong 
Beasts took the place of the Ikes and 
Mikes to conquer the Vermont field 
hockey Beauties, 5-4, for an average of 
two for three, amid the protests of the 
Ikes and Mikes, originators of the battle, 
who interrupted proceedings with a word- 
less demonstration which left its mark 
upon the participants. 

The Beasts, who were biting, kicking, 
and scratching their way to a victory over 
a pickup team of Bennington stars, were 
arrested in midfield by the dramatic en- 
trance of the Ikes and Mikes late in the 
second period. As Round, Red Mr. Sun 
was casting lengthening shadows on the 
field, and the Bennington cheering section 
(all eight of them) was entreating and 
pleading with their sweating sisters to 
forge ahead of the Purple menace, the 
famous Williams organization struck their 

Ikes, Mikes Protest SUently 

A high-powered Packard phaeton 
zoomed up to the field, and amid the 
scream of brakes, eleven sombre huskies 
alighted with dignity but resolve. Clad 
in their usual pre-contest outfits, long, 
black hooded cloaks, the group solemnly 
formed a single file and paraded. Gar- 
goyle-fashion, on to the field. Play was

Joined in a mutual expression of ridicule 
for the demonstrators, who were, how- 
ever, made of sterner stuff. Undaunted 
by the unlovely expressions of disapproval 
coming from the players, the Ikes and 
Mikes marched, wordless and with stem 
expression, past the athletes. They lined 
up in front of the cheering section, and 
stood, looking neither to the right nor to 
the left, while the onlookers read the pla-

College Library Staff Publishes 
Handbook as Guide to Students 

A simple Library Handbook for the pur- 
pose of introducing the students, more es- 
pecially the lower-classmen, to the basic 
information needed in using the facilities 
of the College Library has been prepared 
by the Library Staff at the request of the 
Library committee. The new handbook, 
which describes the building arrangement 
and explains how to use such tools as the 
card catalogue and the magazine indexes, 
is now available, upon request at the Ref- 
erence Desk. 

The pamphlet, covering general pro- 
cedures in locating material, forms only a 
background for the work of individual de- 
partments. According to a statement is- 
sued by Prof. John P. Comer, Chairman of 
the Library Committee, it is hoped that 
the members of the various departmental 
staffs will, with this guide as a basis, de- 
velop techniques which will assist the stu- 
dents in becoming familiar with Library 
resources in their various fields. If this is 
done then the ideal of "making the library 
the center for the teaching of the social 
sciences and the humanities" mentioned in 
the President's Report of September, 1936, 
which the new plan of instruction antici- 
pates, may become a reality. 

The majority of work on the new guide 
was done by Edward B. Stanford, Dart- 
mouth '32, formerly of the Detroit Public 
Library who joined the Williams Library 
staff this summer. Other new assistants 
are Miss Sylvia Stuart, Simmons '33, in 
the . cataloguing department, and George 
Finney, Princeton '30, formerly of the 
Enoch Pratt Free Library of Baltimore. 
The publication of the handbook conforms 
to what is gradually becoining standard 
practice in a great number of college libra-

Hofmann Played with Appropriate Technique And 
Art, Was 'Supremely Adequate", Says Louis Hector 

By Louis 

A concert which includes music of many 
widely different styles and emotions, each 
played superbly with its own appropriate 
technique and spirit, is a thing of great 
rarity, but this is just what Williams en- 
joyed at the recital of Josef Hofmann last 
Friday night in Chapin Hall. It was the 
first presentation of the Thompson Con- 
certs for this year, and judging from the 
complete sell-out of season tickets and the 
large crowd Friday evening, the series will 
probably be highly successful. The skep- 
tical who are inclined to believe that Wil- 
liams students will only applaud Paul 
Whiteman, had a chance to hear vigorous 
ovations, particularly after the group of 
Chopin and the Rachmaninoff Prelude in 
C sharp minor, which was the last encore. 

Of most concerts, a certain dominating 
mood or style of playing may be indicated 
but this is not true of Hofmann's concert. 
The music was played throughout with 
great feeling and understanding, with 
complete assurance and mastery. Al- 
though the adjective is usually one of mild 
deprecation, one might say that Hofmann 
was supremely adequate. He played 
every piece as well as anyone could hope 
but nothing was over-played, nothing was 
made too brilliant or too emotional. 

The "Fury over the Lost Penny" 
which was composed very late in Beetho- 
ven's life at the saina time when he was 
writing his very obwure and mystical last 
quartets, was pUyed as a piece of buf- 
foonery and rough humour with no at- 
tempt to make it something more than 
it is. Th« choral section of the Chopin 
scherzo, which is so often played in a sort 
of fake religious mood by a slow, solemn 

J. Hector '38 

tempo, was given real meaning and poig- 
nance by the very sympathetic reading. 
But when the music was very profound 
and emotional, as in the Schumann Son- 
ata, Hofmann realized fully the depth of 
its meaning. He passed easily from the 
highly romantic Chopin compositions full 
of melancholy and ecstasy, to the pleasant 
serenity of the Albeniz "Tango"' and his 
own "Berceuse", and then on to the gay 
brilliance of the Liszt "Venezia e Napoli". 

The secret of this complete mastery is 
to be found in Hofmann's own comment 
about growing "in conscious art". The 
concert was given without any stage man- 
nerisms or affectations; there was no at- 
tempt to impose the performer's person- 
ality on the music, to change its original 
meaning; the successive pieces, in short, 
were not used as proving grounds to show 
off the pianist's technical skill or emo- 
tional impressionability. There was sim- 
ply complete mastery; he was supremely 
adequate. That is why everything ap- 
peared so easy and sure in the recital, why 
there was no violent straining for breath- 
taking effects. And it is this conscious 
realization of the meaning of music, of its 
natural style and manner of performance, 
combined with an unbelievable technical 
skill, that makes Hofmann such a great 

The great applause after the group of 
Chopin's compositions was answered with 
two encores, a song of Chopin tran- 
scribed by Liszt and a Chopin waltz. At 
the end of the concert, Mr. Hofmann 
played another waltz of Chopin, the "E 
Minor Scherzo" of Mendelssohn, and the 
Rachmaninoff Prelude.

^"Roundlt"^ Board] 


(jovcrnor Fiiindon in his siieech at In- 
dianupolis on Saturday finally expressed 
his views on foreign policy. It was a per- 
formance of blowing hot and cold to catch 
the favor of all shades of tlie political spec- 
trum, so obvious that on closer exami- 
nation it will be pleasinf; to none. 
For example: 

"The greatest service which our country 
can render for the doing away urith war is to 
enamrage by every homyrable means within 
our power, except the use of armed farce, 
the arbitration of international disputes. 
To this end we must devote our utmost 

"As for ourselves, while we have been 
leaders in the settlement of disputes by 
arbitration, we cannot use the World 
Court. Those many fine men and women 
of both parties who in the past have de- 
sired American membership in the court 
will, I am sure, agree that circumstances 
have chanKed. Some of the judges of the 
court now represent dictatorships, not 
democratic governments. It was always 
difficult to keep political influences out 
of the court, ft is impossible now. The 
United States could not be involved in a 
political court." 

We know of no instance in which a ver- 
dict of the World Court has been influ- 
enced by any dictatorship. Judges of the 
Court do not "re|)resent" governments; 
they are appointed from The Hague, and 
are chosen as experts on international law 
rather than diplomats. For example, 
the American most recently honored with 
an appointment is Professor Manley O. 
Hudson of Harvard Law Hcliool, rather 
than a statesman even of the caliber of 
Henry L. Stimson. The weakness of 
arbitration is not in the court but in the 
frequent refusal of powers to submit 
disputes — for example, Germany's refusal 
to submit to the World Court the question 
of France's "violation" of Locarno by 
'•' I i.'.i.iijr :■ imvX V. ith Russia, which had 
■■CIV"' M„ (111) g^iiuse for Germany's 
/InKvi.'ii li-rtppina ■:>! that bulwark of 
liUioiJttin ptirtOf. it Germany could have 
pulled strings at the World Court, it 
would have been unnecessary for her to 
refuse its arbitration. And how coukl 
Landon possibly find a more unbiased 
arbiter, especially for disputes between 
the United States and the dictatorships in 
Another example; 

"Still another contribution is to assist 
in lowering ivorldwide trade barriers arul 
re-establishing liealthy ccmiomic conditions. 
Economic ynisery keeps nations restless and 

"As I have said, a revival of world trade 
is an aid to the preservation of peace. I 
pledge myself to do everything in my power 
to bring this about." 

How is this to be reconciled with the 
Republican high-tariff platform with its 
condemnation of any reduction in barriers, 
even in such a cautious mimner as the 
reciprocal trade agreements, with which we 
are so proud to have the name of a Wil- 
liams alumnus associated? 

A man who makes such statements 
either does not know the meaning of the 
language he is using, in which case he is a 
fool, or else be is intentionally trying to 
deceive the country, in which case he is a

To the Editor of The Record 
Dear Sir : 

This Tuesday marks the observance of 
the much-heralded Navy Day, a day of 
jubilation for those who take pride in 
national strength and an occasion for an- 
nouncing once again the "urgent necessity 
of building up our navy to treaty quota." 
We are supposed, I presume, to become 
patriotically militant just for this day, and 
look with swelling pride upon the bigger- 
and-better navy-building propensities of 
our compatriots. To scatter confetti and 
admire the Indianairolis seem to be the 
standard evidences of loyalty to the com- 
mon weal. 

There are some of us, however, who 
await the annual recurrence of Navy Day 
with something like an uncomfortable 
dread. If a navy day, why, in the name 
of Job, not a battleship day, a sixteen- 
inch gun day, or a torpedo day? One 
carries about as much logic as the other. 
Why not, indeed, a poison gas day, or a 
delectable bayonet day? It is no more 
sinister to worship a single ugly instru- 
ment than it is to worship the whole de- 
ceptive system controlling all of them. 

A big navy no longer holds glory for us; 
the insatiable desire of others, on the other 
hand, for an unparalleled sea power, 
seems only insane and perverted. There 
is something childlike in the desire tor 
the "biggest and best" machinery. There 
is something savoring of morbid hypo- 
chondria in our ever-increasing fear that 
we shall be hurt and must protect our- 
selves. The world could use psychiatrists 
who would expose this phobia and some 
honest men willing to decry the glorified 
pugnacity which a large navy represents.

Fox Dislikes Roosevelt's 

Major Economic Policies 

(Continued from First Page) 
The administration claims tremendous 
strides forward in our international trade 
jjolicy. The negotiation of reciprocal 
trade agreements have been ii step in the 
right direction, ami Secretary Hull should 
be praised highly for his unstinted efforts. 
In themselves, however, they are of minor 
consequence in their effect on our inter- 
national trade, and they are a far cry from 
the frontal attack on tariffs made by Wil- 
son an<l promised in the 1932 i)latform. 
On the other hand, the indirect effect 
of other New Deal policies has been to in- 
crease the obstacles to freedom of trade. 
Devaluation with its consecpient effect 
of raising the dollar prices of goods traded 
internationally actually made our ad 
valorem tariffs increasingly burdensome. 
It also bred rei)risjils abroad in the form 
of higher tarifTs, (piotas, embargoes, and 
exchange control to restrict im|)orts. 
Our agricultural policy in raising the price 
of "King" cotton induced foreign im- 
porters to seek other sources of supply 
and fostered production abroad to such 

an extent that there will be great difficul- 
ties in regaining our lost markets. 

Such a record coupled with many 
statements implying an isolationist econo- 
mic program are not reassuring. In con- 
trast, I feel fewer qualms over a Repub- 
lican administration especially with Mr. 
Landon's vague yet hopeful statements 
as to his own position. 

Disapproves Farm Policy 
In agriculture the New Deal has merely 
postponed an attack on the fundamental 
discrepancy between our producing and 
consuming capacity for farm products by 
paying benefits to destroy our surplus 
production. To be sure, farm incomes 
have benefited from the program, but 
actually the rest of the people have paid 
the farmers for destructive labor and will 
have to continue to do so until a more 
rational program is devised. 

I might add that it seems incongruous 
for the Resettlement Administration to 
put more peo|)le on the land to increase 
productive capacity. The entire policy 
is one of prosperity through scarcity. 
Although the Land<in program promises 
little new, I have confidence that he will 
make a direct attack on this perplexing 

In industry the N.R.A. was a miserable 
failure. It fostered monopolistic agree- 
ments which harmed rather than helped 
the small producer. Its reemployment 
provisions served merely to share em- 
ployment, or we might say to share un- 
employment. Certain wage provisions 
actually tended to make reemployment 
more difficult. 

In some ways it embodied again the 
philosophy that prosperity could be re- 
stored by producing less and receiving 
higher prices for it. Although dead at the 
moment, there are indications of an at- 
tempted revival of N.R.A. principles 
which were so (lista.steful. 

Relief Criticism Deemed Needless 
I need spend no time on the adminis- 
tration of relief. Although the need for 
it was obvious, the extravagance, waste, 
corruption, and of the methods 
of administering relief can hardly be jus- 
tified on humanitarian grounds. 

Finally, the grab-bag administration of 
Federal ex|)enditures seems far from 
ended if the present administration con- 
tinues in office. Borrowing on a large 
scale can continue for some time to come 
since the banks are in the helpless position 

where they must continue to subscribe to 
government securities to safeguard the 
value ot their own assets. 

This gives a free hand to a spendthrift 
government to continue its distribution of 
largesse to favored groups with little con- 
sideration of the cost to be borne in the 
future. Although we can maintain an 
unbalanced budget for some time, there 
will be continued uncertainty and con- 
tinued fear of inflation in the minds of 
business men. 

Wants Strong Administration 

Every additional issue of bonds will ac- 
cent that fear because every government 
bond in the hands of commercial bankers 
is a means of getting reserves from the 
Reserve Banks for credit expansion. 
Since banks now have excess reserves of 
around $2,000,000,000 an|d around 
$10,000,000,000 of government securities, 
we may well fear the possibility of a wild 
credit inflation. 

There is little wonder that business men 
fear unbalanced budgets of such magni- 
tude. We need a strong administration, 
strong enough to resist popular demands 
for more and larger benefit payments, to 
put our finances in order and build a se- 
cure foundation for economic prosperity. 

There are many points of view from 
which we must consider our choice of 
candidates. I hav«^ attempted to show 
briefly certain objections that I have to 
the economic program of the New Deal. 
To me they are sufficiently strong to 
prevent my placingi confidence in Mr. 

Others will give hiore importance to 
other than economic factors, but unless 
our economic foundations are secure, our 
humanitarian and liberal aspirations will 
fail of realization. Therefore, I prefer 
to place my confidence in Mr. Landon's 
ability, to secure a sound economic pros- 
perity, and in his liperalism, to make it a 
prosperity for all.

production of The SccdiuI Mitu wliicli is

made possible by the fact that it is an

with the author of liifigra/ilt!/, a smooth 
and sophisticated play, with clever dia-

The third i)lay, Rcfimii is intended to be 
a hilarious farce about a man of forty who 
fe<'ls that he was cheated in the money he 
paid for his secondary education, so he 
returns to the scdiool for redress. The

Powerful Williston Team 

A spirited drive in the fourth quarter 
carried a powerful Williston soccer team 
to a victory over the yearlings 3-1 Sat- 
urday at Kasthanipton. TIk* game was 
marked by the brilliant ofTense of the home 
team, led by (Jeorge IIowm^, llutlon, and 
Keller who netted the scores for the 

.lumping into an early lead in the first 
(|uarter when Keller, inside left, tallied in 
a mix-u]> in front of the yearlings goal, 
Williston was not ])r('ssed until the last 
i|uartcr when the Purple offense began to 
click, bed l)y Ned Levering who scored 
the only goal for Williams on a corner 
kick, the forward line often carried the 
hall deep into enemy territory only to be 
repulsed by the home team's fullbacks 
(luring the last, period iis.sault8. 

Williston put the game on ice in the final 
(piarter when Hutton and Keller scored 
in rapid sucicession to attain a 3-1 lead for 
the victors. The score probably would 
have been higher if it had not been for the 
brilliant defensive play of the yearling 
fidlbacks, Art Riidiard.son and Carmer 
lladley who broke up many attacks led by 
Williston's forward line. Ned Levering 
starred on the offense for the Purple, 
while Bill Touret, right half, stood out on 
both defensive and offensive play.

Visitors' Assault

FieliliiiK Siniinons luldcd a siKiiificant 
link to tlic disconnected strinn of Williams 
victories when, after six minutes of i)lay, 
he tore throuRh an oul\weiKlicd Tufts for- 
ward wall on a |)erfectly executed off- 
taclile slant for 4() yards and tlie only 
score of a tightly fouglit contest before 
30(X) siipctators on Weston Field Satur- 
day. It was the third Purple success in 
five starts against the Jumbos and the 
eighth successive victory for the Ephnien 
on their lionic field. 

AltliouKh the Kphnien made only five 
first downs to their opponents' eight, the 
ball was consistently in Brown and Blue 
territory all afternoon, and it was only the 
lack of a scoring punch that kept Charlie 
Caldwell's re-vaniped starters from piling 
up the points. Timniy King, prominent 
in this week's shake-up, started the game 
at (luarter back in place of Doug Stearns 
and in a workman-like fasliion went about 
setting the stage for Simmons' dash. 

An exdiange of i)unts following diet 
Ingraliam's spurt to mid-field on tlie 
opening play from scrimmage, gave Wil- 
liams the ball on their own 2C-yard line. 
Two successive offside penalities on tlie 
Jumbos gave the Kiihmen a first down, 
and in three cut-backs tlirougli the left 
side of the line. Bill Stradley jiicked uj) 
eighteen yards and aiiotlier first down, 
putting the ball in position for the play 
which was to result in the score that 
proved to be the margin of victory.

Harriers Win Easy 21-34 
Victory Over Middlebury 

Purple Takes Five of First Seven 

Positions as Collens, Kiliani 

Tie for First 

Showing the results of a week's con- 
ditioning an<l hard work, the Purple har- 
riers came back from their R. P. 1. defeat 
a week ago to down Middlebury Saturday 
l)y a 21-34 score. Clipping 21 seconds off 
the R. P. 1. victors' time. Bill Collens and 
Bay Kiliani outdistanced the rest of (he 
runners to cross the finish line simul- 
taneously in 22:13.6, as the Williams group 
took five of the first seven places. 

The fact that Middlebury's Coach Art 
Brown, Williams '07, brought his charges 
here Friday to run the trying Taconic 
course in a practice session undoubtedly 
accounted for a far more interesting meet 
than last week's Engineer encounter, for 
familiarity with the distance enabled the 
first ten men to finish within a minute and 
fifty seconds of each other. 

The starting gun on the Lali campue eont 
Captain Art Stanwood into first position, 
followed by Rlchardlon* of the visitors, 
but at the half-way ijiark, Johnny Mar- 
shall crept out ahead to pass the two 
leaders. Bill Collens and Bay Kiliani, 
who had been legginji( in the rear up to 
this time, suddenly forged ahead over the 
difficult hill on the second lap to second 
and third places respectively, while 
Johnny Marshall relinquished the lead to 
slip back to fifth place, which he held the 
remainder of the race, closely followed by 
Don Brown and Lou Brooks of the Purple. 
Captain Brooker of Middlebury had ad- 
vanced from the rest of the pack to a 
favorable scoring position. 

Rounding the last stretch onto Weston 
Field, Collens and Kiliani, who had 
greatly increased their advantage over the 
gruelling two hills to win the lead from 
Richardson, joined hands and broke the 
tape together, ending the contest in a tie 
similar to that earned by R. P. I.'s leading 
four men last Saturday. A little more 
than half a minute later, Brooker, who 
had been gaining steadily, swept alongside 
of Richardson to score a dead heat for 
third, while the next five places were ac- 
counted for by the Purple, as Marshall, 
Brown, Brooks, Rood, and Stanwood 
crossed the finish line in short order.

Williams Soccer Team Ties 
Bruin ElevenJ4, Saturday 

Close Outstanding as Team Plays 

Erratic Game but Stays 


By Franck K. Davis '38 

In perhaps tlie most hectic, hard-fought, 
and exciting game to be played on Cole 
Field in recent years, the Williams soccer 
team retained its undefeated record by 
earning a 4-4 tie with a rugged and ex- 
perienced eleven from Brown University 
Saturday afternoon. Coming back after 
a disastrous secoml jieriod had seen their 
one goal lead turned into a similar ad- 
vantage for the Bruins, the Purple hooters 
rallied to tie the score at 3-3 in the third 
session, and then after a scoreless fourth 
period, again knotted the count in over- 
time after the visitors had secured the 
lead by netting a penalty shot. 

Johnny Harris, Sophomore inside right, 
drove through the tying marker for Wil- 
liams with but two minutes left in the 
extra session with u long hard boot from 
just inside the penalty area which soared 
untouched into the ujjper right hand cor- 
ner of the Brown net. This tally added 
to a goal by Pete Gallagher, which put the 
Purple ahead 1-0 in the opening session, 
and scores by Farney Fowie and Keen 
Butcher, proved just enough to match 
the three tallies sunk by Brown in the 
second period jilus the one in overtime. 
Bruins Score in Second Period 

Starting the game with the best brand 
of jilay that they have produced this sea- 
son, "Uncle Ed" Bullock's charges con- 
tinually threatened their O])ponent's goal, 
and witii Pete Gallagher's brilliant kick, 
went into the second frame with a one 
point lead. However the second quarter 
found the Williams players in such a com- 
plete reversal of form that it was hard for 
the onlookers to realize that they were the 
same team that bad been carrying the 
attack to their rivals a few minutes earlier.

omnipresent Keith, put on a dogged rally 
that netted four first downs, but failed to 
get the invaders out of their own terri- 
tory. Moon Duane stopped this spurt 
before it was well unleashed by inter- 
cepting a Brown and Blue pass seconds 
before the half ended. 

The infrequent dashes of the substitute 
Williams backs, notably Larry Durrell 
and Hank Stanton, who on occasion gave 
brilliant demonstrations of broken field 
running, were about all that the Purple 
stands found to cheer during the second 
half, in which time the Ephmen failed to 
compile ten yards in any one set of four 
tries. They had, instead, to content 
themselves with watching Dick Colman, 
Tim King, and Hank Stanton hold the 
redoubtable Keith to a four-yard average 
advantage in a kicking dual, and be glad 
that the last period rally of Tufts did not 
end in disaster. 

Woodrow, starting his first contest of 
the year, proved beyond all doubt that 
he had earned the post, and the work of 
King at quarter impressed everyone that 
watched his rapid, precise execution of 
plays, but the chances are that next week 
at Schenectady will see still further ex- 
perimentation on the part of the Purple 
mentor who Is now pointing for the Little 
Three contests which will spell success or 
failure for 1936. Beside the outstanding 
play of Captain Keith, Tony Spath hved 
up to advance information by being a 
nuisance to the home team all afternoon, 
while the Jumbo line proved its defensive 
ability beyond a doubt by holding Wil- 
liams on each advance within its 30-yard

In black ink on white cardboard the 
signs expressed, in neat phraseology, sen- 
timents which were, on the whole, de- 
cidedly derisive to almost everybody. 
Best remembered were signs saying, 
"?Sport8 lovers or just! Lovers! 7 ?", 
"Why play mice when men are unavail-

but greeted with lusty boos and occa- 
sional cheers, nonetheless.

Spectators Perhaps Disillusioned 

After they hadi stood a sufficient period 
of time, the Dissenters marched off the 
field, and climbed into their high-powered 
automobile to disappear into the after- 
noon. The athletes returned to the game 
with renewed vi^or which seemed some- 
how hollow. The feeling pervaded the 
stands that, after all, these were really 
only imposters. 

However, imposters or not, the Beasts 
proved invincible, and left the field with 
a hard-won victory. It might be here 
stated that numerous of the hometown 
supporters did not feel that the battle was 
too cleanly won, but the Beasts were 
happy, and the Beauties were beaten. 
Outstanding for the menfolks, outside of 
the two ringers who were drafted at the 
last moment, a Bennington professor and 
one of the frail undergraduates, were Joe 
and Mac. Joe fouled continually, and 
led the Williams offense; at any rate he 
was the chief offender. 

Brought up on the more manly hockey 
arena — artificial ice — Joe and Mac found 
it hard to break themselves of a habit of 
hitting the ball with both sides of the 
sticks, and apparently striking the spheroid 
with the rounded portion of the club is 
definitely frowned upon. This Joe and 
Mac found out after continual roll-ins and 
similar tricky plays by the girls, which 
they never did quite understand. 

Most of the game the score was tied, 
and the Hilltoppers were never really 
ahead, but it did seem as though they 
were going to duplicate the deadlock of 
the last battle. However, near the end 
of the game, the Beasts started a concen- 
trated attack on the left wing, which 
yielded with surprising reluctance, and 
then Joe and Mac took the ball quickly 
up the field, scarcely fouling at all, and 
on a quick pass from Mac, Joe parted the 
twine and the game was the Beasts'. 

Tunis Calls Amherst 'Semi-Pros' 
Williams, Wesleyan 'Simon-Pures' 

John R. Tunis, in a recent article in the 
American Mercury rated the Amherst 
foot))all team as semi-professional along 
with twenty-five other colleges and uni- 
versities, in a classification of 100 Ameri- 
can educational institutions. Williams 
and Wesleyan he honored with a "simon- 
pure" standing in the article. 

He divided the colleges into thre3 
classes; amateur, semipro, and strictly 
professional, defining the first group as 
"small colleges of high standing, many of 
extremely high standing in the educational 
world. They all play football. So far as 
I know, none of them buys athletes or goes 
in for a high-powered professional coach. 
None attempts to underwrite a huge 
stadium." Dartmouth, Harvard and Yale 
were placed in the same category as Am- 
herst, while Princeton, Pittsburgh, and 
Columbia were three eastern teams which 
achieved the rating of strictly professional.

Williams Soccer Team 

Ties Bruin Eleven, 4-4 

(Continued (rom Fourth Page) 

in no time at all the Bruins Imd rammed 
through three gouU in rapid and mysti- 
fying succession. Only a long looping 
corner kiclt by Keen Butcher, outside left 
who played the best game of his college 
career, which found its way into the 
Brown net, kept Williams in the running 
during this nightmarish session. 

Fowle's Goal Ties Score 

Trailing 3-2 at the beginning of the 
third period, the Purple attack regained 
something of its early power and Farny 
Fowle finally broke through to score the 
tying goal on a close shot late in the period. 
The fourth session found both teams 
threatening repeatedly and the play mov- 
ing rapidly up and down the field but 
neither eleven was able to break the 3-3 

The overtime period proved to be 
another thriller with Brown going out in 
front after Jackson had sunk a penalty 
shot in the opening minutes. As the 
Williams team rallied, Harris sank his long 
kick which caught the Brown goaltender 
flat-footed, tied the score and kept the 
Purple ledger clean. 

Although the game was marked by in- 
consistent play for the most part, Dave 
Close at right halfback for Williams 
stood out as the most brilliant player in 
the field, covering endless territory, never 
seeming to tire, and repeatedly repulsing 
the Bruins with his sure-footed kicks. 
Captain Gray Ijirkum, Bob Surdam, 
and Dim Drake also played consistently

Little Theatre Plays For 
Initial Presentation Cast 

'Two Gentlemen of Soho', 'Refund', 

'The Second Man' Go Into 

First Rehearsals 

By Cadwallader Evans III, '38 

With tlie cuHthiK almost completed, the 
Little Theatre has put into rehearsal its 
ImII hill, to he presented in Jesup Hall on 
November 24, the night before Thanksgiv- 
ing vacation. Most of the actors are 
iipperclassmen, the list of familiar faces in- 
cluding such veterans as John F. Dingwall 
iind A. Knisely Smith '37, J. Judson Mor- 
(.'un and John B. Swift '38 and Joseph C. 
Clement '39. 

TwoGenilemen of Soho, the A. P. Herbert 
burlesque which was presented in 1933, 
^^ill again have Dingwall, President of Cap 
iind Bells, in one of the leading roles. The 
jiart that was taken by William McKnight 
'34 is in the hands of Judson Morgan, who 
has been outstanding in college dramatics 
since the fall of his Freshman year, when 
he played the lead in Wings Over Europe. 
Since then his characterizations have run 
from Prince Hal in Henry I V, Part I, to 
the ethereal lover in Outward Bound. 
Knisely Smith Again Features 

Knisely Smith, who has specialized in 
comedy roles in frequent Little Theatre 
liills is also in Two Gentlemen of Soho, as is 
,lohn B. Swift, voice-contortionist of the 
Junior class. Laura Tappen Saflord is the 
(inly woman cast so far. She has taken 
part in undergraduate plays for several 
seasons in comedy roles. 

In The Second Man, by S. N. Behrman, 
of which the second act alone will be given, 
two Bennington girls will play the only 
feminine roles. Miss Barbara Tripp and 
Miss Marianne Bertie will play Monica 
Grey and Mrs. Kendall Frayne respec- 
tively, in the sophisticated love quadrangle. 
Courtenay Moon '38 and Allan B. Neal '39 
will take the other two parts, those of the 
lovers who are slightly mixed in their 
jilights. Gordon T. Kay '38, has procured 
the services of Talcott B. Clapp '38, tech- 
nical man and occasional actor for both 
Cap and Bells and Little Theatre, as as- 
sistant director. 

Refund, by Fritz Karanthy has been 
completely cast. James H. Mitchell '38, 
as the middle-aged man seeking to get his 
money back for his education, has the long- 
est part. Clement and Robert S. Schultz, 
111, Cap and Bells actors, and Brad- 
ford Whitney, all '39, are also in important 
parts. Philip H. Warren, Jr. '38, who was

The following is the tabulation by states of the nation wide collegiate presidential 
poll conducted by the Daily Princetonian in which the Williams vote is that recorded 
by the Sketch poll. Roosevelt leads Landon by over 3000 ballots, a change from 1932 
when a similar questionnaire brought a Hoover plurality of 11,000, although the 
Princeton statisticians have decided that Landon leads Roosevelt in states won, 18 to 10 
and in electoial college votes, 233 to 200. Fourteen states were not heard trom.

Prof. M. J. Bonn Tells in Lecture 
Of Fears for Economic Collapse 

A comprehensive picture of the begin- 
nings, growth, and final breakdown of 
economics throughout the Western na- 
tions was given Monday evening in Jesup 
Hall by Professor Moritz J. Bonn, lec- 
turer at the London School of Economics, 
sjioaking on "The Disintegration of World 
Kconomics". Declaring that "economics 
liaa degraded into a spiritual conception", 
I'rofessor Bonn, who spoke at the In- 
stitute of Politics in 1924, expressed fear 
tliat the economic and political unity of 
I lip world will break up i)ermanently. 

The lecturer devoted much of his at- 
tention to the role of colonies in the history 
of economics, declaring that the actual 
disintegration movement in the modern 
economic world dates back to the Declar- 
atlon of Independence, which helped break 
n|) world unity through its attack on 
ciilonial ambitions. "The World War," 
tlie speaker said, "was the final blow that 
broke up the already fast crumbling em- 
liires. It also lowered the prestige of the 
western world enormously, for both the 
conquerors and the conquered disinte- 

Professor Bonn traced the development 
"f the economic system and dwelt briefly 
on the modem trend toward economic 
nationalism, declaring the movement to be 
"not merely political or economic, but 
spiritual as well." After the war this 
economic nationalism became more ruth- 
less than ever, and not only did the nations 
fall apart in their relationships, bnt the 
colonies also lost their respect for the 
mother countries, the lecturer stated.

Campus Democrats and Republicans 
lock horns in Jesup Hall Monday night 
at 8.00 in the first meeting of the Hopkins 
Log for the year when on the eve of elec- 
tion the society debates the question, 
Resolved: That a republican regime would 
be preferred to the democratic adminis- 
tration. Forty-three new lx)g members 
from the Junior class were elected at a 
closed session held last Tuesday. 

H. V. E. Mitchell and John P. Causey 
'37 will present the case for the New Deal 
while John C. Goodbody '37, chairman of 
the college Landon-Knox club, will lead 
the attack against the administration 
with Courtenay J. Moon '38. These men 
have been selected by the rival political 
organizations to open the argument and 
close the debate; but l>og members, other 
undergraduates, faculty members, and 
townspeople are expected to enter the 
arena during the course of the evening. 

Stanton, Dingwall, McCoun to Officiate 

Speaker for the evening will be John F. 
Dingwall '37 while Henry T. Stanton, Jr. 
'37 will serve as secretary and Robert D. 
McCoun '37, ex-heavyweight wrestler, 
will act as Sergeant-at-Arras. This an- 
nouncement was made by Thomas S. 
Green '37, president of the group, at the 
Tuesday meeting when new members 
were greeted and drawn into the opjmsing 
election camps. Green also discussed 
plans to make the I.og more active and 
more influential on the campus. 

Organized two years ago on the model 
of the Oxford Union, the Ix)g started 
with its most successful meeting at which 
the direction in which President Dennett 
was headed was argued at length. Origi- 
nally founded by a group of juniors, the 
group now includes members of both the 
upper classes and with its new permanent 
set up and admission to the Student Ac-

President-Emeritus Harry A. Garfield 

M^rites 'Record' in Favor of Roosevelt 

Former Williams Head Praises President's 'Extraordinary Courage,' 
Feels He Can Better Withstand 'Pressure Politics' 

Members of the faculty who through some mischance have not received ballots 
in The Record poll are requested to communicate immediat<-ly with John Causey, 
telephone 123, or between 4.00 p. m. and 6.00 p. m. Sunday afternoon at 72-W. 
Co-operation is requested so that the poll may be as complete as possible. 

( The following article is an open Idler* ' 
written to the Editor of The Wili-iams 
Record by President-Emeritus Harry 
A. Garfield, and is the last of a series of 
seven opinions on the current campaign 
written by members of the Williams College 

You ask me for whom I intend to vote 
at the coming election and why. In 
1932 I voted for Mr. Hoover. On 
November 3rd, I intend to vote for Presi- 
dent Roosevelt. 

The President has shown extraordinary 
courage in the face of an appalling con- 
dition. Like the captain of a sinking 
ship he thought of "women and children 
first". Thanks to his skill and foresight, 
to sound timbers and to the craftsmanship 
of her builders, our ship of state has come 
through grave iierils, and is proceeding 
safely on her voyage. 

To drop metaphor, President Roose- 
velt dared to act when action was im- 
perative. He dared to make mistakes; 
and he made them, as he predicted he 
might. The New Deal means work for the 
unemployed, aid for the unemployable, 
and pensions for old age. 

Most right-minded people are for all of 
that, but many find fault with the methods. 
Amendment of the acts is always possible. 
If some are irritated by the suggestion 
that amendment is possible, it is fairly cer- 
tain that what they are really opposed 
to is social legislation of any kind; method 

IS a convenient cloak. To those who 
would let the helpless drown, I have 
nothing to say, for they themselves are 
spiritually beyond man's help. 

People cry out against expense and 
talk about balancing the budget. We 
should all like to see government spend 
less and make ends meet; but we know 
that, if Governor Landon is elected, pres- 
sure politics will continue to be exerted by 
the lobbyists cmi>loyed by the advocates 
of national defense, veteran relief, farm 
relief, social legislation, and unemi)loy- 
nient relief. 

In my judgment the President will he 
able to withstand the pressure better 
during a second term in office than would 
Governor Landon in a first term. Both 
his experience and the fact that during his 
second term President Roosevelt has 
everything to gain by building a high and 
enduring place for himself in the minds 
and hearts of his fellow-countrymen 
promise this result. 

But all this and other things aside, I 
applaud the present Administration for 
two great achievements — the reciprocal 
tariff agreenienta and the reciprocal ar- 
rangements made between Great Britain, 
France, and the United States for the 
stabilization of our currencies. It is vital 
to the welfare of people at home and 
abroad that these agreements and ar- 
rangements be carried through to a suc- 
cessful issue.

No. 31 


We call the attention of the two upper olasse.s to ihe Increase in the 
number of automobile accidents reported since the openinfj; of college. 
The percentage has been much greater than in tiie corresponding period 
of recent years, and if Ihe trend continues the undergraduates nmst pre- 
pare themselves for a restriction of the privilege of operating cars while at 
college. We are justly proud of the record of tlie last four years, during 
whicli there has been no fatid accident to any undergraduate, but the 
growing carelessness which in some degree is to account for the increiise in 
minor smash-ups and repair bills augurs ill for its maintenance, especially 
with the more hazardous driving conditions of the oncoming winter 

The administration has no desire to remove the privilege on other 
grounds. A year ago, for example. Dr. Dennett made the shrewd obser- 
vation that the automobile performs a useful service in making the 
better-ordered recreational facilities outside the valley accessible to the 
undergraduate. It is in accord with the new freedom from rigid attend- 
ance re(iuirements for all upperclassmen. If it is withdrawn, it will be be- 
cause of pre.ssine on the adnunistration due to an inordinate increase in 
the number of accidents. The margin between minor and fatal accidents 
is iJl too slight. Student drivers will do well not to force the hand of 
the administration, lest they find it harder to deal with than any state 
trooper could be.

Present Democratic Adminiatration. 


Williams' little contribution (o 
the current ili.sciairagoiiioiit of all 
fair-minded pacilist.s is contained 
ill the three letters .subiiiilted in protest of 
.loliniiy Reeves' intelligent criticism of 
Xavy Day. Their grounds are the same 
false patriotism so cliaracleristic of Mr. 
Hearst's readers, and their puerile attitude 
so ridiculous that one even tacitly agrees 
with the Hearst-Pulitzer foiiientoil Span- 
ish-American War. When this tyjie of 
seiilinieiit persists even in the present "en- 
lightened" era, we realize the validity of 
Harry Emerson Fosdiek's comment at the 
Centenary that our age is characterized by 
"progress, without ilirection". It be- 
comes more and more apparent that the 
present contributors — if iihysically fit, etc. 
- along with the rest of us will have the 
magnificent opportunity to provide propa- 
ganda fodder for future Xavy Days. We 
can hardly wait. . . . We've been trying to 
get a line on how our alumni have been 
slui|)ing up in the election, though just now 
all we have on hand is a bit of gossip from 
the Williams Club in Xew York. Dick 
Murphy (nee Flip), Pete I.yon, our lust 
year's boss and embryonic Time tycoon, 
and Burge Green, Coir and hymn book il- 
lustrator extraordinaire of '35, have 
formed the nucleus for any Administration 
sentiment that turns up. They haven't 
had much business, though, since Doug 
Lyon and most of the rest of the club are 
staunch Young Republicans, driving the 
hardy band of Roosevelt sym])atliizers to 
such intellectual soirees as Stern's Evening 
I'lisl round-ups for support. Their politi- 
cal differences, we were assured, do not in- 
terfere with their usual activities, whatever 
that may mean. . . . ■\s a little commentary 
on the "course correlation" program, we 
uouUl like to slip in a word of annoyance 
at tlie English Department. Seniors tak- 
ing the three courses open to them this 
year were confronted with the first imiiiir- 
tant exams grouped in the space of two 
days. . . . And before we get away from this 
Department, we'd like to persuade some of 
our rabid .sjiorts enthusiasts who have re- 
marked that the faculty issuffioiently staffed 
to come around and take a look at the 
present professors struggling with seven- 
teen men in the pro-seminars. It's about 
!v,s informal as Saturtlay afternoon under 
the clock ut the Rilii.u^ro. . . . We'd like to 
mention Cal King's latest improvement. 
The Waldcn is installing the new Mirro- 
plionic sound equipment next week, .lust 
lierfected by Western Electric, this new 
tone-clarifying machine is turned out by a 
concern which got the jump on the field at 
the start and has stayed well ahead since. 
A private informant told us the whole busi- 
ness would total over fifteen hundred iron 
men, worth some live thousand adiiiissioiis 
at the ])resent rate of exchange. . . . We 
haven't heard a peep from over .Ainherst 
way about their po.ssible altercation with 
Mr. Tunis in regard to their "semi-profes- 
sional" standing. In spite of Stanley 
Woodward's incoherent rage the next 
iiioniing in the Tribune, we don't imagine 
the local autlioritics are too worried. Wil- 
liams' Simon piires have done pretty well 
in the iiast, after all. . . .

Williams and Union Clash Today for Thirtieth Time 

Purple Hopes to Check 
Dutchman's Aerial Game 
With Unchanged Line-Up 

Tyler Dennett, Jr. May Start for 

Garnet; Eddie Stanley to 

See Service 

i: By Woodward B. Norton '39 

Williams will swing inti) the final stretch 
of the 1936 football campaiKn at 2.00 
o'clock on University Field in Schenectady 
today as the overliauletl Purple machine 
engages a mediocre Union outfit in the 
thirtieth annual renewal of the series begun 
in 1H87. Apparently satisfied with the 
Ephmen's iii-st period showing against 
Tufts last week, Couch Charlie Caldwell 
plans to have the same men take the field 
today that answered the opening whistle in 
the Jumbo encounter. 

Always a fighting club, the Garnet is 'ex- 
pected to give the visitors a real tune-up 
for the Wesleyan game a week hence, es- 
pecially in the passing department where 
the Purple can stand plenty of work. 
Union engaged R. P. I. in thei. latest test 
and pulled victory out of the fire after 
three scoreless, evenly fought periods on a 
fifteen-yard forward from Ernie Brown to 
Bill Thomas midway through the final 
quarter, thereby turning a trick that the 
Cardinals have been successfully attempt- 
ing with alarming regularity throughout 
the season. 

Pass Defense Stressed 
Caldwell has been putting special em- 
phasis on pass in his scrimmages 
throughout the week's daily sessions, and 
today should reveal what chance the Eph- 
men 'have of stemming an aerial assault. 
Tim King has managed to hold the lead he 
got by virtue of his fast start Saturday and 
will again call signals for the first minutes 
of play, while Dick Woodrow, who also 
made his initial appearance as a starter in 
the Tufts game, continues to hold nis post 

Anderson Overwhelms Kerr In 
Finals of College Golf Tourney 

In a definitely one-sided match, Andy 
Anderson '40, smothered Johnny Kerr, 
his classmate, six and five, to win the 
College golf tournament Thursday. An- 
derson played sub-par golf, going out in 33, 
and finished the 13 hole round with four 
birdies on his card. While Kerr himself 
was shooting nearly-par golf, he could not 
compete with his opponent's 250-yard 
drives, combined with his accurate ap- 
proach shots and deadly putting, and took 
only two of the 13 holes. 

In the semi-final round, Anderson, 
exhibiting an erratic brand of golf far 
different from that he played Thursday, 
was nearly eliminated by Frank Caulk 
'39, and only defeated the sophomore one 
up on the nineteenth. Caulk was two up 
on the sixteenth, but missed a four-foot 
putt on the next hole and drove a ball out 
of bounds on the eighteenth to reduce the 
match to a tie. In the other half of the 
semi-finals, Kerr nosed out Butch Schriber 
two and one to enter the finals with 

against a wealth of veteran material at 

Interest in the game will be heightened 
by the return to the Purple line-up of 
Eddie Stanley, out for the space of two 
weeks with a hampering knee injury, and 
the possibility that Tyler Dennett, Jr., 
may start at left half for the home team. 
The re-ai)pearance of the shifty Purple 
back is expected to draw a better line on 
the Ephmen for future encounters in Little 
Three warfare as well as add strength to 
the attack on the Garnet, who will be striv- 
ing for their sixth win against the Ephmen 
and their third victory of the current sea- 

Burden on Forward Wall 
By rolling up an impressive total at 
Schenectady, Williams could prove the 
Bowdoin game an unfortunate mistake

Union Eleven Favored To 
Conquer Freshmen Today 

Yearling Harriers to Open Season 
Against Mediocre Garnet 
. Squad Away . 

Two Freshman teams will journey to 
Schenectady today in an attempt to 
register their first victories of the current 
season, which to date has been most un- 
successful as the yearling squads have 
dropped three encounters in a row. 
The football aggregation will be the 
under-dogs when it faces an undefeated 
Union eleven at noon, while the harriers 
will open their schedule against 2 mediocre 
Garnet outfits at the same time. 

The Union yearlings have defeated 
Middlebury 7-0 and last Saturday crushed 
R. P. I. 24-0. They have proven them- 
selves strong on the offense with Ham- 
merstrom at quarterback leading the 
attack. Against R. P. I., aided by 
brilliant blocking, he scored three touch- 
downs, while Nugent, left end, and Krull, 
right tackle, starred on defense. 

Concerning the outcome of the game. 
Coach Bill Fowle said, "I think the boys 
have learned a lot since their last game 
and ought to give a good account of them- 
selves." Pete Lehman and Brad Wood 
are scheduled to start on the ends, sup- 
ported by Walt Mitchell and Ted Brooks, 
a converted guard, at the tackles. Archa 
Knowlton and Dud Head have cinched

Varsity Cross Country Team 

Meets Union at Schenectady 

In an attempt to defeat a slightly- 
favored Union cross-country team, the 
Purple harriers will journey to Schenec- 
tady Saturday for their thini start of the 
season. By comparative figures, the 
Dutchmen, who shaded the Ephmen last 
year, 25-30, have a slight edge over Wil- 
liams, having defeated Middlebury by a 
perfect score, 15-40, and losing to R. P. I. 
20-35, three [joints less than the Purple 
tally against the Engineers. 

The race will be run at 2.40 p. m., so 
that the finish on the track adjacent to the 
football field will coincide with the inter- 
mission between the halves of the Williams 
Union football game. Coach Tony Plan- 
sky will use the same group as in last Sat- 
urday's contest with Middlebury, com- 
prised of Captain Art Stanwood, Bill 
Collens, Bay Kiliani, Johnny Marshall, 
Lou Brooks, Ken Rood, and possibly Don 
Brown, who has been laid up the past few 
days with an injured foot. Jim Gregory 
will take Brown's place in case of the 
latter's inability to run. 

Plansky has been concentrating on 
distance work this past week because of 
the length of the four and one-half mile 
Garnet course, three-quarters of a mile 
longer than the familiar Taconic field. 
A great deal will depend upon how well the 
Ephmen can hold up over the increased 
distance, although Plansky believes they 
are in excellent condition.

Today's There are those who like to look 
Tune-up at today's game over in Sche- 
nectady with Union as merely a 
polisher for the Little Three series to start 
next week with Wesleyan in town, but the 
column has abandoned this idea and likes 
to think of the games as they come on the 
schedule. No one thought very highly of 
Bowdoin after their defeat in Middletown 
but they managed to come back with 
enough to completely outplay an unin- 
spired Williams club. The Purple follow- 
ers are given something to cheer about in 
the news that Eddie Stanley may see serv- 
ice for the first time since the Brunswick 
debacle. Union has lost three times, but 
beat R. P. I., its Capitol district rivals, in 
the last time out and appears to be defin- 
itely improving. They are reputed to 
have a formidable passing game with Cap 
tain Brown doing the tossing, and, besides, 
there is one Tyler Dennett in the Garnet 
backfield for Caldwell's men to contend 
with. We look for a Purple victory today 
and hope that Danny Lewis and the boys 
will make it a real convincer to bolster our 
hopes for the battles to follow. 

Fourth Here we enter the fourth week of 
Week the annual Record Football 
Contest with only three weeks to 
go. All contestants have been advised to 
get in good scores this week as we are going 
to eliminate all men who have no mathe- 
matical chance of victory after today. We 
have chosen a lot of tough games this week 
with an eye to this acid test for those who 
are now resting in the lower brackets. Our 
choices for this Saturday's trits are as fol-

The Williams varsity soccer team, still 
unlieaten but anxious to get back into the 
win column after their tie game with 
Brown last Saturday, will meet a stionij 
R. P. I. eleven on the latter's field at Troy 
this afternoon. Today, for the second 
time. Coach "Uncle Ed" Bullock's team will 
be facing stiffer opposition than usual as 
R. P. I.'s team is far ahead of the eh^vcii 
which bowed to the Purple bootera 
year and already has impressive wins ovci' 
Stevens Tech and Hamilton to its ciodjl 

With the disastrous second period of 
last Saturday still fresh in its memory, i|,(. 
team has been drilled throughout the 
week in extensive defensive scrimmages 
in an attempt to do away with the bunch- 
ing up of the full and halfbacks which led 
to two of the Bruins' goals last week. 
However no changes have been made in 
the starting line-up except for the replacing 
of Kelso Davis at fullback by El Stowcll 
now fully recovered from his arm injury. 

Practice sessions this week have revealed 
much better team work in the forwuid 
line with many reserves showing decided 
improvement. Dimmy Drake has ])ao('d 
his group and is now threatening the center 
position at present held down most capa- 
bly by Pete Gallagher. George Carter 
and Tony Wallace are other second slriiit; 
line men who are steadily improving « jth 
increased experience. 

Dave Close and Turner Blake are (wo 
halfbacks who cover endless territory and 
play a crashing game, and are ably su|)- 
ported by the Sophomore Huff Hadley 
whose waiting tactics and long kicks arc 
always a menace to opponent's kicks. 

Grey I.arkum and Elmer Stowell will 
again play in their accustomed fullback 
positions with Dave Johnston starting in 
the Williams net.

Dates Chosen for Speakers 

Under Sponsorship of Forum 

Definite dates for three .speakers were 
announced at a meeting of the Forum hist 
Tuesday by E. G. Ballard '37, president of 
the organization. Only three of the ap- 
proximately eight commentators have been 
chosen, of whom Grant Wood, eminent 
artist, will appear on January 10 to talk on 
"Regional Art." 

Following him on February 14 will l)c

to discuss "Japan's Dominance in Asia", 
while the only other speaker now booked, 
Paul Engle, a young poet, will be sponsored 
March 7 in a lecture on "Poetry of Modern 
Life". Efforts are being made to engage 
Stephen leacock, well-known economist 
and humorist, and Bruce Bliven, editor of 
The New Republic, who spoke last year at 
the Model l^eague of Nations, for dates 
during November and December. 

Ballard also stated that a conference 
with Dr. R. D. I.eigh, president of Ben- 
nington College, resulted in an agreed 
policy of co-operation on dates of impor- 
tant speakers to avoid conflicts, if possible, 
concerning the two colleges' programs.

Unwilling to break up a winning combi-

Caldwell will send out a team consisting of

Danny Lewis at center, with Johnny Jay 
and Dick Collnan on either side, and a

Stradley, Fielding Simmons, and Moon 
Duane. It is thought, however, that as 
long as today will be the last chance to test 
the squad before the traditional battles 
with Wesleyan and Amherst, nearly every 

man making the trip will see some action 
during the afternoon. 

Kdclie Stanley, Hunk Slingerland, Hank 
Stanton, Pete Seay, und Doug Stearns are

The Chapin exhibit for the first two 
weeks of November, arranged for the 
English 3-4 course, shows certain of the 
notable pieces of Elizabethan and Ja- 
cobean literature. 

The student muy see in this exhibit not 
oidy the Shakespeare First Folio, 1623, 
but the Folios of 1032, 10(13, l()()4und 1685. 
Here ulso are various volumes in quarto 
size, showing the dilTcrence in format be- 
tween folio and quarto. 

Among these quartos are plays by 
Shakespeare's conteni|)oruries, Jonson, 
Creene, Kyd and MaiUnve, while sources 
used by these men are shown in volumes 
of Plutarch, Holinshed and Painter. 

The purjiose of the exhibit is thus two- 
fold. It shows exaini)les of the work of 
the great dramatists and with them in- 
cludes books by Scot, Heywood, Latham, 
Gerard and others which convey some- 
thing of the thought of the time. These

Managers' Association Files Petition 

To Undergraduate Council to Disband 

Body Decides Its Functions Do 

Not Require Complex 


By Cadwallader Evans, III '38 

Mamlay, November 2 — Believing that its 
oiiKiiittl purpose does not justify the exist- 
ence of a body of its size and complexity, 
the Managers' Association will today pi'e- 
scnt a petition to the Undergraduate Coun- 
cil that it may he allowed to disband. The 
decision, presented by a proposal of the 
executive committee, was unanimously 
reached at a meeting of the organization 
Thursday, after a lengthy discussion. 

The present Managers' Association had 
its origins in the Wilcunia, a body consist- 
ing of all Varsity managers and assistant 
managers, whose sole purpose was to meet 
and entertain visiting teams. A secon- 
dary function, as stated in the constitution, 
was that the body "may exchange ideas 
and discuss ways and means of co-operat- 
ing with each other." This, in the opinion 
of William A. Rahill '37, president of the 
organization, created a "top-heavy bu- 
reaucracy for a need which was not very 

Actions Deemed Repetitions 

As it has worked recently, the Managers' 
Association has carried on the function of 
meeting visiting teams. This, in the 
judgment of the present managers, is too 
minor a detail to occupy .such a group 
since the task could bo handled more 
efficiently by the managers of the separate 
sports. The other function, that of acting 
as a forum, for the discussion of athletic 
problems, they regard as an unnecessary 
repetition of the action of sub-committees 
of the Undergraduate Council, which 
handles all legislative matters concerning 
college athletics. 

As the pre.sent system of campus govern- 
ment stands, it would he impossible to give 
the Managers' Association any more active 
powers without infringing on the rights of 
the other bodies which handle all such 
matters, the Undergraduate Council and 
the Athletic Council. Explaining this side 
of his organization's action, Rahill said, 
"In recommending that the Managers' 
Association be disbanded, we do not deny 
the need for an undergraduate organization 
to foster student interest in problems relat- 
ing to athletics, but we do feel that parlia- 
mentary complexity so weakens the pres- 
ent set-up that it is detrimental to such in- 
terest. Undergraduate representation on 
the Athletic Council makes for a very 
ilirect avenue for approach to athletic 
problems if only the proper means of 
crystallizing student opinion might be de- 

Rahill Presents Petition 

In expanding this statement, Rahill ex- 
pressed the opinion that students should 
liave a chance to bring any complaints or 
suggestions directly to the agency which 
could produce action — the three under- 
graduates on the Athletic Council.

News Bureau Compelition Open 
Today to Sophomores, Freshmen 

A competition for membership of the 
Williams News Bureau, which for the 
first time will be open to members of the 
Sophomore as well as the Freshman class, 
was announced today. At the end of no 
more than six weeks, a maximum of five 
students will be selected for positions as a 
result of the only competition to be 
conducted this year. 

The News Bureau is the only college 
publicity organ which covers Williams 
news for outside newspapers. Directed 
entirely by undergraduates, the organi- 
zation regularly serves fifteen newspapers 
and three national press services, besides 
the home town papers of Williams stu- 
dents. Members are paid according to the 
amount of copy which they write. 

News items concerning the College 
are mailed, telegraphed or telephoned 
daily by the Bureau which has released as 
much as 36,000 words on the events of a 
single week-end. The organization cen- 
ters its functioning in a special office in 
Jesup Hall where assignments are posted 
and necessary facilities are available.

Tonight in Hopkins Log Election Debate 

Beginning the program for the year 
with a meeting Thursday evening at 7.30 
in Griffin Hall, the Philosophical Union 
will hear Profes.sor James B. Pratt, read 
part of a chapter from his new book, Per- 
sonal Realism, concerning the will and its 
freedom. The entire college, whether 
members of the Union or not, are invited 
to attend. 

According to John H. Ballantine '37, 
president of the organization, the Phil- 
osophical Union has a definite program 
this year as opposed to the relatively in- 
definite schedule of last year. Several 
meetings are to be held at which members 
of the Philosophy Department will read 
papers prepared for the occasion. Several 
outside speakers are to be engaged, and 
plans are being formulated for an under- 
graduate symposium which it is hoped will 
be as successful as that held two years ago 
on the Theory of the State. 

This year the Union will also endeavor 
to select discussion topics of a less techni- 
cal nature so that the meetings will be of 
more general interest to the student body. 
In former years membership in the Union 
was confined almost entirely to those tak- 
ing philosophy courses, whereas this year 
President Ballantine hopes to attract 
others as well. 

Professor Pratt's book on personal real- 
ism is to he published some time this win- 
ter by the MacMillan Company of New

decoration plans, and various other pro- 
jects were among the detailed arrange- 
ments for the Williams-Wcsleyan football 
dances reported Sunday by Arthur M. 
Tibbitts '37, manager of the Williams Glee 
Club, sponsor of the affairs. 

Chosen to serve for the Undergraduate 
Council at the formal Friday evening 
dance are Robert W. Booth, Austin Boyd, 
Jr., Richard M. Hillman, Abram S. Hol- 
linger, Paul M. Jacobs, and Lindsay 
Thomson, '37. For the informal Saturday 
evening affair Frank B. Conklin, S. Bil- 
lingsley Hill, I^efens Porter, Francis B. 
Sayre, and Edward L. Stanley '37 will act 
as floor committee.

will be, as in former years, streamers and

Roosevelt Campaigners invade 
WilHamstown in Auto Caravan 

The Massachusetts Progressive Com- 
mittee for the Re-election of President 
Roosevelt carried the current political 
campaign to WilHamstown Sunday after- 
noon when a sound-tract caravan parked 
on Spring Street to serve as rostrums for 
the itinerant New Deal advocates. Sev- 
eral Williams students took advantage of 
the visitors' offer to use the microphone for 
defending the Republican cause, while un- 
dergraduates and townspeople on the side- 
walk, heard glib finger-tip knowledge con- 
cerning the merits of the present adminis- 
tration, and cheered retaliations by the

its vote for the last five Presidential elec-

liamlet eight miles south of here, has com- 
pleted preparations to repeat this well- 
nigh traditional role by pacing the nation 
tomorrow. With their first telephone in- 
stalled to hasten communications and 
with an alleged WPA organizer foiled in 
underhanded political schemes, the town's 
forty-eight voters retire early tonight in 
order to rise at daybreak tomorrow and 
accept the challenge of many small com-

Instrumental in cutting down the large 
Republican majority of previous years has 
been Benjamin Boyce, chairman of the 
Democratic committee and delegate to the 
Democratic state convention. A Record 
reporter entered his roadside filling sta-

headquarters, just before the newly in- 

first time with the Williamstown exchange. 
North Adams Doesn't Answer 

After a few minutes of suspense, Boyce, 
who was hovering over the phone, dropped 
a nickel in the slot and called a Demo- 
cratic coworker in North Adams. Sur- 
prisingly there was no answer, nor did his 
"other" North Adams acquaintance an-

he slammed down the receiver, exclaiming,

Marcel Aubert Will Lecture On 
Chartres Cathedral Wednesday 

Ur der the combined auspices of the Al- 
liance Francaise and the Department of 
Fine Arts, Marcel Aubert, curator at the 
Louvre Museum in Paris and one of the 
foremost authorities on medieval architec- 
ture, will talk on the Chartres Cathedral 
at 4.15 p. m. Wednesday in Lawrence Hall. 
The noted speaker will treat his subject 
from the standpoint of its architecture, 
sculpture, and stained glass windows, pro- 
fusely illustrating his exposition, which is 
to be entirely in French, with lantern 
slides. Concerning this aspect of the lec- 
ture Mr. Samson L. Faison, Associate 
Professor of Fine Arts, asserts, "that 
despite the fact that the talk will be given 
in French, all those who attend, I'm cer- 
tain, will not be disappointed." 

Besides his position at the lx)uvre in 
Paris, M. Aubert recently was honored by 
election to I'lnstitut de France, the highest 
tribute that can be paid an intellectual in 
France. He is by no means unknown in 
this country,havingspent considerable time 
in the last five years as a Visiting Professor 
of Fine Art* at Yale University, lecturing 
at N. Y. U., and many of the smaller col- 
leges. At the Tercentenary Celebration in 
Cambridge this fall, M. Aubert was present 
as a representative of France. 

ance '14, who is handling the Williamstown 
end of the preparations for the event. 
Deems Taylor, noted American authority 
on music and composer of the opera, "The 
King's Henchman," will provide both writ- 
ten program notes and spoken expositions 
of the music for the performance in the 
Hippodrome in New York on Tuesday 
evening, December 1. 

Fred E. Linder '12 will serve as vice- 
chairman of the alumni committee in 
charge of arrangements while Roger W. 
Riis '17 is to handle publicity for the com 
mittee and will be in charge of printing 
programs. It is probable that a debutante 
committee will take care of the sale of the 
souvenir programs for the concert, the en 
tire net proceeds from which are to go for 
the housing of the Whiteman Collection of 
Musical Americana. 

Outstanding in an evening which is 
heralded as an event in musical history, 
will be the performance for the first time 
anywhere of a composition for solo voice 
and orchestra by Richard Rogers and 
I^renz Hart entitled "All Points West." 
This piece is called an "unusual composi- 
tion in American music" and has as motif 
the conductor's monotone in announcing 
train departures and stops. 

Aside from Mr. Reardon 's unique per- 
formance on the harp, other unusual pres- 
entations will include "Eben Chronicle" 
by the Negro composer, William Grant 
Sill, and "Scotch Suite" by Mr. White- 
man's chief of staff, Adolph Deutsch.

Mondiui, November 2 — Tonight, on elec- 
tion eve, the political campaign in Wil- 
liams College comes to a climactic close 
with an ojien meeting of the Hopkins Log 
in Jesup Hull at 7.30 p. in. in which under- 
graduates, iiienibers of the faculty, and 
towns))eoi)le are exiiected to battle over 
the resolution, "liesolved: That a repub- 
lican regime would be preferable to the 
Roosevelt administration." 

Republican and Democratic campus 
organizations under the leailersliip of 
John C. Goodbody and IrvingGoldmtin '37, 
respectively will organize the debute 
from the floor and will each present an

Log Has Voted Anti-Roosevelt 
Undergraduate interest In the session 
has been heightened by the statement that 
Marshal J. Wolfe '38, Editor-in-Chief of 
Sketcli, may say a few words against the 
G. 0. P. Another pro-Roosevelt 
harangue bus been promised from Melviu 
V. Landon '38, a distant relative of the 
republican candidate. 

John F. Dingwall, Henry T. Stanton, 
and Robert D. McOoun '37 are to serve 
as speaker, secretary, and sergeant-at- 
arms respectively for the meeting, the 
Log's first of the current year and the 
fourth of the organization's two-year life. 
In a similar debate held last S|)rlng, iiieni- 
bers of the Log voted 40 to 22 that Roose- 
velt should not be reelected. 

Closes Campus Political Activity 
This evening's session brings to a head 
the campus election activities of the last 
six weeks which have been marked by the 
partial failure of a Rei)ublican rally, the 
questionable success of a Democratic 
rally, and the cancellation of an all-party 
rally which the Forum and Liberal Club 
had planned to present. This lust meet- 
ing died when neitlier major iiolitical 
party would co-operate in sujiplying 

Landon-Knox supporters have re- 
mained quiescent up to the gathering 
tonight since their initial meeting October 
() at which all loyal campus Republicans of 
voting age were urged to procure absentee 
ballots in order to record their vote. The 
Democrats, however, although main- 
taining an equal inactivity in Williams- 
town, have sent speakers to various points 
in Berkshire and Hampshire counties dur- 
ing the past few weeks to rouse the ]iop- 
ulacc for the President.

Street, the local New Dealers forged to a

Faculty Supports Roosevelt, 'Record' Poll Shows; 

Local Merchants Favor Landon on Election Eve 

By James M. Bums '39 ♦ 

Evidence of a wide variation between 
the political sentiment of the Williams 
faculty and that of the undergraduate body 
was afforded Sunday when tabulation of 
The Record faculty poll revealed that 
thirty-five faculty members are supporting 
Franklin D. Roosevelt for the Presidency, 
with twenty-eight in favor of Alfred M. 
Ijandon. An undergraduate straw vote on 
the same question conducted by Sketch at 
the beginning of October gave a total ot 
523 votes for Landon to 140 for Roosevelt. 

Probably the most interesting feature of 
the faculty poll is its indication that thir- 
teen faculty members who voted for Nor- 
man Thomas, Socialist candidate for presi- 
dent, in 1932 are supporting Roosevelt in 
this election, and that no member will vote 
for Thomas today. This bears out the

While seven establishments stated that 
they were definitely for l.«iidon and the

the issue by saying that they preferred to

November 3, 1936 

No. 32 


The most recent issue of the Anihorst Sliideiil carries on its front 
pape a ."umniary of the article l)y .lohn R. Tunis in the November A^ner- 
icnn Meirui-ji cla.ssifying Amhei'st among the colicRes with a "semi-pro" 
athletic ixiliey. In the absence of any contirmation or denial, we are 
unable to decide what to believe. On the one hand, indirectly sup- 
porting Mr. Tunis, there is Allison Danzig's dispatch from Amherst ap- 
pearing in the New York Tiinen on October 9, to the effect that "With 
the sympathetic backing of President Stanley King, Amherst's young 
head football coach and director of athletics is contiuering everyone in 
sight in a battle begun in 1923 to make the campus so sports-conscious 
as to create a zest for intercollegiate competition, where before scholas- 
ticism acted as a damper on the natuial enthusiasm of the undergraduate 
for a winning team." On the other hand, there is the vigorous denial in 
last week's Herald Tribune by Stanley Woodward, an Amherst graduate 
of not many years back. Certainly the course of Little Three compe- 
tition shows no marked superiority of Amherst under the Jordan regime 
over the "simon-pures" of Williams and Wesleyan. 

Ordinarily it is no concern of ours how a neighboring college runs its 
affairs, but if Mr. Tunis, who, be it noted, cites no actual evidence, is 
right, there is likely to be some demand that Williams adopt a similar 
policy. Accordingly we address ourselves to the editors of the Amherst 
Student, representing the best undergraduate opinion at that institution, 
to ascertain whether Mr. Tunis's classification is to the best of their 
knowledge correct, and if .so, whether they feel that such a policy is a good 
one for "small colleges ... of extremely high standing in the educa- 
tional world." 


Call it Purple Key, Wilcoma, or the Managers' Association — it has 
appeared from time to time in Williamstown in each of these guises, 
but its activity has rarely survived the mimth of May. Its deci.sion 
to dissolve will once again be welcomed. We have rea.son to hope, how- 
ever, that it will not speedily reappear, for a conununication in this 
issue of The Record shows that the undergraduate members of the Ath- 
letic Council are prepared to do what the Managers' Association should 
have done — to take an active interest in finding out the opinion of the 
taxpaying students in regard to athletic expenditures, and making it 
available to their fellow-members on the council. An excellent oppor- 
tunity is offered for constructive suggestion or for redress of grievances. 


It IS with some teeiiiigoi trepiuauuu uiai, 
we perlmps invade the precincts of one of 
our polleaKues, that of predictions, al- 
though we are liere concerned with elec- 
tions rather than athletics. Taking refuse 
in what anonymity that we have, and care- 
fully scanning all possilile indicators we are 
rash enough to make .some statement, al- 
thougli what happened to Princeton on 
Saturday is still green in our memories. 

Attacking on the line of easiest resist- 
ance, we will give Governor Landon 
Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont. 
From then on the going becomes more 
difficult. Of the major states I.andon has 
the best chance in New .Jersey and Peni\ 
sylvania, which we feel that he will carry 
And even there if the metroiiolitan vote of 
Newark, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh Is 
sufficiently large, the President may win. 
In Massachusetts the i.ssue is more flouht- 
ful, but our expectation is that it will go 
Republican by not much more than 20,000. 
In order to make a clean sweep of New 
England, Connecticut and Khodp Island 
should atso go for the Republican nominee 
by narrow margins. 

Swinging west, the Democratic candi- 
date should lie victorious in Ohio, Illinois, 
Indiana, and Michigan, The situation is 
somewhat analogous in all these states, the 
crux being the relation of the urban anil 
rural vote, Michigan and Ohio being the 
most doubtful of these four. 

In the corn belt and Iowa are 
the most uncertain. Kplitting our proph- 
ecies, with a prayer, l.andon will carry the 
former, with Iowa falling into the Demo- 
cratic column. The fact that both parties 
admit that the Kansas vote is the elo.icHt 
in recent history, and that the .same thing 
is said about Iowa leaves us on somewhat 
unsub.stantial support. 

As we look at it that is about all. Opin- 
ion is expres.sed that Washington will vote 
for l.andon, but for the sake of controversy 
we will call it Democratic. Similarly we 
do not believe that the appeal of Senator 
Carey in Wyoming or the silence of Sena- 
tor Borah in Idaho will bring the electoral 
votes of two states into the Landon 
column. West Virginia is another state 
we wish were not here but since we must. 
let's say Democratic. 

Thus we think that it will line up when 
the ballots are counted on Tuesday to 
about 101 electoral votes for bandon to 
430 for Roosevelt. Making this predic- 
tion, fully cognizant of the vagaries of the 
mas,s mind, fully aware of the closeness of 

the whole affair, we wonder why we do. 
t-.'i.D.i r the same reason that we tempt 
\iU- i picking football games, and that 
f ui-r. •> to think again of Princeton, or of 
.uii ; , of Georgia Tech, and what hap- 
pened to them. The thought is ominous. 

A Republican Speaks 
For lo, these many weeks The Record 
through this column has pretended to pre- 
sent the opinions of its Editorial Board 
while on its front page various members of 
the faculty have presented reasoned opin- 
ions on why they are voting the way they 
are. The writer says "pretended" advis- 
edly because, as the project has worked 
out, the vast majority of anonymous opin- 
ions have been written by supporters of the 
present administration. 

There are, however, a few who, still 
among the shades of the "horse and buggy 
era" like to feel with Walter I.ippmann that 
the road to Utopia does not lie backwards 
along the path of more and more authori- 
tarian government with a man who counts 
on votes paid for by relief money to get 
himself reelected. That, it seems to us, is 
the |)rinci|)al factor in this election, and one 
which our New Deal friends have stud- 
iously avoided, even to the extent of refus- 
ing to allow investigations into relief situa- 
tions in various states until after election. 
Supporters of the jircsont administration 
make mtich of the fact that business, which 
admittedly hobbled up to the incumbent at 
the start of his term of office in search of 
help, now belabor the hand that toured it. 
This, it seems to us, is not a fair statement 
of the case. The parallel has been drawn 
of the patient who throws his crutches at 
the doctor who has mended his broken leg. 
There is another parallel which seems to us 
to be equally applicable; that of the plas- 
ter cast which is kept on the broken limb 
until it is strong enough to stand alone, 
when it is removed. 

Business, then, is doing no more than 
any intelligent doctor does when it tries to 
remove the plaster cast which, at first 
beneficial, now restricts further growth. 
The writer grants that the parallel does 
not hold if carried to the bitter end, but 
this is a characteristic of all parallels, 
even those used by the Democrats. 

Certain among the college newspapers 
of the East have stated editorially their 
support of the President's candidacy for re- 
election on the grounds that he offers the 
most hope to the youth of America of a 
chance for success and happiness. This 
sup|)ort comes naturally enough from the 
rosy aura which anything smacking of the 
'liberal" has about it when regarded by a 
certain type of youthful mind.

To the Editor of The Record, 
Dear Sir : 

I am sorry to say that Mr. Reeves in his 
communication has not interpreted the 
correct spirit of Navy Day. 

Congress set aside Theodore Roose- 
velt's Birthday as the day we should de- 
vote to honoring our Navy. It did not 
mean this as the time to show off methods 
of destruction and means of annihilation 
of our neighbors in the community of na- 
tions. This day was the time to look 
back over history and ))raise the deeds of 
those men that did so much to protect

Ave atque Vale Last Thursday, when tl e 
Managers' Association 
met, they were somewhat distressed a' dis- 
covering that Bill Cohendet had ai)par- 
ently run off with the minutes of the hist 
meeting, so that these records could not he 
read. Further, neither the constitution 
nor the by-laws could be found; a little 
carelessness last year has evidently con- 
signed these documents to some ilusty 
attic, or possibly a harassed senior in the 
Zete house mistook them for Coii' mat?rial 
and dropped them in some waste-basket. 
Then, finally, the Managers' Association, 
pulling itself together to vote on the first 
matter discovered that not even a quorum 
was present, and accordingly voted to dis- 
band, which seemed sensible enough. 

We might, Winchell-like, give a little 
informal data on the origin of this particu- 
lar extra-curricular species. Rejjutedly 
founded by a couple of juniors who were 
anxious to wear Clargoyle pins in the Ciym 
Lunch on Sunday mornings, this organiza- 
tion at any rate was anchored on singularly 
unfirm ground. The two excuses for its ex- 
istence, as far as we can find out from the 
old-timers still around who have once 
glanced over the errant constitution, were 
( 1 ) to promote friendly relations between 
Williams athletic teams and their oppo- 
nents and (2) to provide a forum for dis- 
cussion of various athletic matters. The 
former |)lank is, of course, thoroughly ridic- 
ulous. ,Iust standing around at games 
bursting with neighborly si)irit is a difficult 
thing to do in the first place, and would 
prove very little in the second place; the

on the Governor of Kansas. His invita- 
tion was in danger of remaining unaccepted 
until Wentworth Smith '38 mounted the 
rumble seat of the coupe and assailed the 
New Deal treatment of relief and the de- 
ficit of the Post Office Department which 
was revealed in the Treasury report in 
contrast to Jim Farley's statement that the 
department was operating at a profit. 

"Did the Republicans ever run the Post 
Office Department at a profit?" queried 
Mr. Kobre. "Did the Democrats?" re- 
torted Smith. The former's explanation 
of the departmental (mntradictions were 
not very clear, and ho declared that 
Smith's unemployment figvires were faulty,

John C. Goodliody '37, prominent campus

attitudes are about the only ones that 
count, with the exception of the football, 
baseball, and basketball games, where the 
spectators' behavior must be considered as 
well. The second foundation of the

able; namely, to discuss the needs and 
personal attitudes of all our athletic units. 
Apparently, if we are to judge from their 
recent pessimism, this .system bus been 
anything but successful, to say the least. 

There are ])lenty of constructive criti- 
cisms which will be offered in the next

als. We won't attempt to list them now. 
But the executive set-u]) is pretty shaky, 
as is ])roved by the red tape tliat the Man- 
agers' Association had to go through to get 
anything done (their recommendations 
were referred to the Undergraduate Coun- 
cil — for why, dun't csk? — and then to a 
sulicommittee, and so far, far on into the 
undergraduate night). It has ajjjjurently 
been proved that some adequate .student- 
alumni-Administration conferring commit- 
tee should be created. All the parties 
concerned now are mixed up in prejudice, 
outside interests, or — what is worse — 
complete lack of understanding, Imt we're 
hoping everything will be unwound before 
you can say the name of any member of the 
Colgate backfield.

Cavalcade Williams' pipeline to the out- 
side world was temporarily 
clogged Sunday afternoon when the motor 
"cavalcade" of the Massachusetts Progres- 
sive Conmiittee to re-elect President Roose- 
velt invaded the Sabbath quiet of Spring 
Street with mouth and microphone to 
further tlieir cause. All in all, it was sort 
of fun, if a bit "wet". Any sort of excite- 
ment is always interesting, and what the 
undergraduates lacked in technical knowl- 
edge and finger-tiji facts they made up for 
in enthusiastic support of whatever was 
said by the Landonites. When we queried 
one of the invaders as to the purpose of the 
visit he said that he didn't think their 
crusading would change any votes here 
"Anyway," he added, "sometimes it's a lot 
of fun." We are inchned to agree. To us 
it seems pretty silly to travel from town to 
town shouting verbiage through a micro- 
phone, yelling and being yelled at, some- 
times diverting to the childish, and ac- 
complishing virtually nothing except per- 
haps to drive a few Democrats over to 
Landon. We think that a sense of humor 
is the primary requisite for a political 
career. Or maybe we're prejudiced.

Trinity Whitewashes Wesleyan; 
Amherst Conquers Mass. State 

Anxious Williams foHowers, watching 
the football fortunes of Wesleyan and 
Andierst last weck-tuid. are now complete- 
ly confused as to tlii^ Purple chances 
against its l,ittle Three op|K)nents for the 
next two Saturdays. Wesleyan, which 
rolled its uid>eaten string to four games, 
in uihselting Amherst, was trounced l)y 
Trinity, '20-0; while the Salirinas jiassi'd 
their way to a 13-7 vi(^tory over Mass. 

According to the account in The New 
York Times, "it was apjiarent that Wes- 
leyan was in the midst of a mid-season 
slump." Threatening only twi<^e, the 
Cardinals proved easy prey to the line- 
l)ucks and end sweeps of and 
0'Mall(!y. and lacked the precision of the 
previous Saturday. In the light of com- 
parative scores, wdiicli never mean any- 
thing. Williams should enter the contest 
on even terms with Wesleyan. Against 
Bowdoin, Wesleyan scored a 20-0 victory, 
while Williams was beaten the next week- 
(?nd, 0-0. On the other band, the K|)b- 
men turned back liaverford 40-0, while 
the C(mnecticut team came out ahead l)y 

Amherst is even more of an enigma. 
Going into the Wesleyan game as favorites, 
they were beaten soundly, and ai)|)arcntly 
have not recovered yet. Saturday they 
were overwhelmingly favored to capture 
the town championshij) from Mass. 
State, but were forced to score on two long 
passes. The game was extremely sloppy, 
marked by frequent errors in judgment 
by both sides, and sixteen fumbles in all. 

Co. turned olT all electric |)owcr from 1 to 
3 p. m. to replace water-damaged genera- 
tors with new ones. 

Officials of the company have expressed 
doubt that u flood of twice the severity of 
last year's could seriously danuige the new 
generators. When (pieslioned by a Rkc- 
oun re|)orter by telephone Sunday after- 
noon, "After three o'clock this afternoon I 
doubt whether either tem|x)rary or perma- 
nent residents of Williamstown will ever 
have trouble with their electricity from

concpicred with our ultra-modern install- 
I mcnt."

moments that kept the score witlun rea-

It was not until mid-way through the 
opening period that the Ephmen's first 
opportunity to score was offered in the 
form of a hurried punt by Ernie Brown 
that went out of hounds on Union's 
39-yard stripe. A beautiful forward pass, 
DouK Stearns to Hank Stanton, put the 
ball on the 10-yard line from where Eddie 
Stanley, back in the Kame after a three

scorinnpass, Doug Stearns to Mike Latvis. 
Moon Uuane was successfid where he had

from where they had left off, sending Larry

Hank Stanton had put the ball in jio- 
sition by a fifteen-yard spurt through 
the left .side of the (Jarnet line. 

Garnet Checks Purple Drive 

Union's chance came soon after the 
internii.ssion at half-time when Campbell 
recovered a Williams fumble on the Pur- 
ple's 2()-yard line. A series of ground 
plays, with Dennett, Brown, and Thomas 
doing most of the carrying put the first 
home score across as the onlookers went 
wild. Brown's conversion was successful, 
hut the Ciarnet's elation was to be short- 
lived. Williams' backfield ripped and 
slashed through the Union line for gain 
after gain until the 52-yard march was 
checked on the home team's S-yard stripe 
by a scries of penalties and a costly fum- 
ble. At that, a forward-lateral around the 
left side of the line gained back most of 
the lost ground, but the Dutchmen

Again in the final quarter the Purple

to the Union goal. Fielding Simmons going 
over for the last Williams score on a 
plunge through right guard. Duane kicked 
the extra point from phicement, and a 
flood of substitutes took the field. Union 
here took to the air in desperation and 
niimaged to push over a second tally 
on a pass from Brown to Lewis with minutes 
to play in the final period. 

Garnet Backs Outstanding 

Outplayed in every deptirtment, the 
Dutchmen nevertheless showed fight right 
up to the final whistle by which time 
almost all of last year's Freshniiin team 
were doing what they could to check the 
.savage Carnet onslaught. 

Outstanding for the home team, and 
iloing yeoman work behind a weak for- 
wartl wall, were the starting backfield 
unit of Dennett, Thomas, Brown and 
Amazon. Easily the most impressive 
player in the Dutchmen's line was Lewis, 
the rugged left end, who played excep- 
tional football for the full sixty minutes. 
Ernie Brown's punting improved con- 
siderably after some erratic work in the 
opening frame, but the combined work 
of Tim King, Doug Stearns, and Bill 
Chapman managed to outclass him in this 

Pass Attack, Defense Improved 

An imi)roved passing attack and de- 
fense, together with the inspired Ijrand of 
play exhibited by the entire line through-

chances against Wesleyan and Amherst.

Purple Booters Triumph In 
Close Game with R.P.1. 1-0 

Gallagher Drives in Winning Tally 

In Third Quarter ; Passing 

Attack Clicks 

A well-timed jab by Pete Gallagher's 
toe gave the Williams soccer team its third 
victory of the season over a strong R. P. I. 
eleven by a score of l-() in Troy Saturday 
afternoon before n large crowtl. In a 
game which was marred only by a second 
quarter let-down, the Pur|)le booters 
turned in the best exhibition of passing, 
defense play, and fight that has been dis- 
I)layeil this year, iireserving an unde- 
feated record over four teams which 
before meeting with the Ephinen boasted 
of a clean slate. 

As in last year's tilt with the Kngincers, 
the passing attack of the Williams aggre- 
gation i)roved too much for the home 
forces, the Purple having command of the 
situation almost always during the game, 
except for a brief time in the second and 
fourth periods. The concentrated attacks 
made into Williams's territory were 
stopped by tight and clever defensive 
l)lays in which the halfback line of Dave 
Close, Huff Hadley, and Booty Blake 
was outstanding. The work of El Stowcll, 
regular fullback, who was moved uj) to the 
halfback line after Booty Blake wtis in- 
jured, was probably the finest on the field. 
Johnston Plays Well 

After pressing the Trojans defense 
nearly all the game and after missing what 
should have been three goals in the third 
quarter, the Purple machine, in complete 
control of the ball, came within scoring 
distance. A pass from Keen Butcher 
was set up by Dim Drake for Pete Clalla- 
gher's perfectly executed kick that proved 
to be the margin of victory. 

Had it not been for the superb jjltiy of 
Dave .Johnston in the net during the 
second iind fourth (lutirters, the final out- 
come might very well have been different. 
Suffering a brief let-down in the second 
frame lU'ter Booty Blake sustained an

Varsity Harriers Bow To 
Strong Union Group, 23-32 

Hawkes, Captain of Garnet, Breaks 

Two-Year Old Schenectady 

Course Record 

In one of the fastest races of the season, 
the Purple harriers boweil to a powerful 
Union club Saturday by a score of 23-32. 
Bill Hawkes, ca])tain of the Garnet, 
shattered a two-year-ol<l Schenectady 
course record as he broke the tape in the 
excellent time of 20:16, clipping 21 secomls 
off the former course mark. 

Bay Kiliani and Bill Collens repeated 
their tie of last week by crossing the finish 
line hand-in-hand for second place. 
Next to finish for the Purple was Lou 
Brooks in eighth. 

The downfall of the Williams group lay 
in the length of the Union course, which 
is nine-tenths of a mile longer than the 
Taconic distance and differing from the 
hilly home field in that it lies over entirely 
flat country and asphalt. Unfamiliarity 
also was a factor in the Ephmen's poor 
showing, since none of the team had ever 
run the distance ))reviously. 

From the beginning, Hawkes was well 
out in front and held his lead all the way, 
while the Williams men looked fairly good 
for three-quarters of the contest. .Johnny 
Marshall, Bill Collens, and Lou Brooks 
all were running in scoring positions, and 
were joined later in the race by Bay 
Kiliani, who, following his usual style, had 
been trailing in the rear. 

It was not until the last half-mile had 
been entered that the Purple showed signs 
of weakening. Only Collens and Kiliani 
were able to keep anywhere near the head 
of the column, while Marshall droppetl 
back to ninth place, where he finished.

Freshman Teams Bow To 
Union i n Two Encounters 

Purple Eleven Defeated by Garnet 

Squad 7-0 While Harriers 

Lose 25-30 

Chailey Ciddwcll's charges 
started oft last Saturday as 
though they were going to 
niassacrt^ the poor Union 
boys as they rtiii up a 10-0 lead at half- 
time. However, in the second half they 
pushed across but one tally, while the Giu- 
ncts took the offensive to register thirteen 
points. It is pretty hard to judge the 
Purple's play when the game is already on 
ice, but the old weaknesses still seem to be 
there. The line wilts under a steady 
drive as seen in the narrow stiueeze with 
Tufts and the secondary has a i)re)-ty hard 
time of it breaking up any sort of a i)ass 
attack. However, Eddie Stanley is back 
in the game and showed that the lay-off 
has done him no harm when he scamjiercd 
around end for a touchdown with his usual 
shifty foot-work. Also, Wonder of Won- 
ders! The Eiihmen managed to get their 
aerial game going and as a scoring weapon, 
at that! A third cheering factor was re- 
vcidod in the ball-toting of little Liu'ry 
Durrell, the Ephmen's siiap))y little re- 
serve back. Ho doesn't pack much in the 
way of potnidage but he certiiinly makes 
up for it in the way of battle and drive. 

Little Atnhcrst tuid Wesleyan didn't 
Three look any too gooil in their games 
Echoes last week with Mass. State and 
Trinity, respectively, in two 
hard-fought local lu-guments. Looking at 
the game over in Schenectady as a sure 
thing, several sons of Ejjh journeyed down 
to have an early look at the Lord ,Jcffs luid 
rejiorted back that they did not .see an 
awful lot. .Jordan's club stepi)ed out on 
the Statesmen's griiliron to meet what was 
sup]K)sed to be tin admittedly weaker out- 
fit, but the Stibrinas wt-re lucky to win at 
all as things developed. The underdogs 
tossed a pass in the early moments to 
place the ball on the Amherst six-inch line, 
and, on the very first play, one of their 
backs just stretched across the final 
marker on, of lUl things, a quarterback 
.sneak! That one was thought to be 
stowed away in moth balls idong with thi^ 
old Statue of Lilierty play, but it caught 
.lorilan's line asleep waiting for the ball to 
be sniipped. Late in the half, Amherst 
tiillied on a long pass but CiU'away's lads 
still led, 7-(), u]) until the closing minutes 
when the Sabrinas clicked on another of 
Michell's long tosses. Unless Caldwell 
manages to bolster his defense against 
I)asscs, this steady-firing sharp-shooter is 
going to make things tough for the Eph- 
men. Other reports floating over the 
Mohawk trail have it that some of the Am- 
herst stand-bys don't look so hot this fall. 
,Jack Cocy, who earned his reputation as a 
I)ass-snaring end, let one drop right 
through the breadbasket while standing 
clear in the end-zone, and the Staters are 
said to have been yanking the ball out of 
Snowball's clutch all afternoon. Addi- 
tional report says that there is a pretty fair 
sub-center named Goodell, who is rushed 
into battle every time the opposition gets 
anywhere near the Sabrina goal-line. Can 
it be that the much-heralded Captain Ken- 
nedy is being eased out of the pivot-posi- 
tion by a harder-hitting youngster?

prediction of political commentators that 
the President, through hisUberal measures, 
will capture many of the liberal votes given 
to the Socialists in 1932, when both the 
Republican and the Democratic platforms 
were conservative. 

Roosevelt Sweeps History Teachers 
The poll also reveals that the Depart- 
ment of History and Government leads all 
others in its enthusiasm for the President's 
re-election, showing thirteen meml)ers in 
favor of Roosevelt, and a lone one for 
Landon. The English department shows 
nine of its members supporting the New 
Deal and a lone dissenter for the Republi- 
can. Departments that favor the Repub- 
lican nominee were the Sciences, nine to six 
for Landon, and the Classics, which give 
Landon three votes to Roosevelt's one. 

That this result cannot be considered too 
representative of department sentiment, 
however, is shown by the refusal of eight 
faculty members who are supporting Lan- 
don to indicate either their department or 
rank or both. It has not been ascertained 
whether or not they are heeding the state- 
ments of the Republican Campaign Com- 
mittee, which has charged that the Admin- 
istration will "crack down" on its foes 
after election. Only one New Dealer 
failed to indicate his department and rank.

WPA Guiles Fail 
A little further conversation brought 
to liglit the fact that Boyce, Republican 
Selectman Harley Phelps, and a Berk- 
shire Eagle reporter have been invited to 
New York to broadcast over a nation- 
wide hookup the exact story on "how 
they did it". "They may make a bum 
out of us in front of that mike," Boyce 
continued; "of course Harley is a fanner, 
but I'm not. I've worked around cities 
for the last seven years." 

Concerning the anticipated rush of the 
many newspaper men to the telephone, 
Boyce explained, "First here, first served." 
He refused to speak about the alleged 
WPA organizer, who descended upon the 
town recently to offer Mrs. Ellen Packard 
a job on a sewing project which would pay 
$13.80 a week. It is a widely known fact 
that Mrs. Packard is a staunch Republican 
with four staunch Republican children. 
She announced that she was not in the 
least swayed by the offer nor by the Hurley 
campaign card which the visitor left. 
Boyce recentl;y went to the extreme of 
kicking out of his filling station a news- 
paper reporter who broached the subject. 
Miss Jordan Is Converted 
Questioning him as to where Forrest 
White, the Republican chairman, lived, 
your reporter received a very menacing 
look, but was back in the good graces of 
the gas station attendant after further 
inquiry as to the whereabouts of Miss 
Phoebe Jordan, oldest woman voter and 
latest Democratic convert, who switched 
parties last election at the age of sixty- 

After a half-mile drive over a bumpy 
back road, your reporter reached her ram- 
shackle cottage, stumbled over an old 
gray cat on its threshold, and found Miss 
Jordan posing for an Associated Press 
photographer in her Sunday best. Later 
she explained that "the picture man had 
caught her unawares, and she had to ex- 
cuse herself and get frissed up.''

porters of the village, while Cabe Prindle, 
football pool tycoon, has placed one 
hundred dollars at two to one odds on 
Landon. At the College Pharmacy, Fred 
Walden and Eddie Dempsey, co-proprie- 
tors of the business, will cancel each other's 
vote by voting Republican and Democratic 
respectively, while Louie Bleau in the 
Gym Lunch emphatically stated that his 
vote would he for Landon, since food 
prices were so high. 

For business and personal reasons, 
several merchants were reluctant to make 
a statement, though it may be significant 
that "Bemie" was listening attentively to 
Gov. Landon's speech on Saturday night. 
Salvatore, owner of the shoe store, was 
convinced to vote for Landon on the 
strength of the speeches which he heard 
Saturday night. 

Rudnicks Stand Neutral 

Others who were among the Anti-New 
Deal stores were the Williams News Room, 
the Square Deal Store, and Seymour's 
Garage who will bring in Republican 
voters in taxis. Perry Smedley, who has 
his contractor's office in Danaher's Hard- 
ware is one of the leading Democrats ot the 
business section, while in general, the 
professional men, including doctors and 
dentists, are non-committal. 

Walter Hart, owner of Hart's Pharmacy, 
feels sure that Roosevelt will carry the 
whole country. And the Rudnicks, hid- 
den behind a clever political veil, are on 
the fence as they have rented two show 
looms to the opposing parties, though 
the Democrats have the larger. The 
Williams Shop, Bastien's Jewelry Store, 
the Perry Insurance Agency, the Mc- 
Clelland Press, and the Walden Theater 
were among those staying neutral, while 
the Williamstown Food Shop has come 
out against the New Deal. Several other 
shops were divided within themselves, so 
no definite answer could be obtained. 

Chief George Royal of the Williams- 
town Police Force declined to make a 
direct statement on the Presidential 
election, though he did say that he would 
vote a split ticket, and that he was a 
registered Republican, as well as a member 
of the Republican Ex-service Men's 

though, she corrected herself. She had 
changed over, she said, not because of 
pressure, but "because you don't have to 
stay in a rut, and Roosevelt tries hard, 
and I think he's the best man — besides 
Landon is a grafter." 

Landon to Carry Town 
Republican chairman White, whom 
your reporter next approached, was more 
specific. "I will make a prediction that 
Landon will get 80 per cent of the New 
Ashford vote. It looked a week or so ago 
as though Mr. Roosevelt might receive 
more than the normal Democratic vote of 
the town, but there has been a change 
in favor of the Republicans." Of those 
registered, according to their own state- 
ments, thirty-eight are Republicans and 
ten Democrats.

fighting that you and I might be free and 
not to oppress weak nations. 

The Navy of today does not want war. 
Tliey are happy that we are on terms of 
peace with all nations. Yet, at the same 
time one must realize that a good defensive 
force is an instrument of jreace and good 
will. We, as a people have no imperial 
designs. We seek no conquest. We are 
actuated by a stern determination to avoid 
conflict by every honorable means. 

Navy Day is not a day in which we are 
proud to show off ships as methods of de- 
struction of other nations. My opponents 
will surely see that there is no harm in 
celebrating Armistice Day, Memorial 
Day, or July 4. On those days we parade 
and march with cannon. Surely, we are 
not gloating over the fact that these 
instruments will destroy our fellow men. 
Now, if my opponent will observe any of 
these holidays and I am sure he does, then 
I am sure he can see no valid reason for not 
observing Navy Day in the proper way. 

Navy Day is the time when we can 
glory over the past. It is a time for us 
to be proud of the heroes of our Navy 
and their accomplishments. It is a time 
for us to rejoice and be proud of the work 
our Navy is carrying on for you and me. 
Wliy shouldn't we be proud of our Navy? 
Let us be proud and love its traditions. 
It is your Navy and mine ! ! ! 
Gordon Hutchins, Jr. '39 

To the Editor of The Record, 
Dear Sir: 

liCt us earnestly pray that there are few 
men today who "await the annual recur- 
rence of Navy Day with something like an 
uncomfortable dread" as described in your 
last issue. Let us rejoice that there is 
still a strong majority proud of the 
strength of our Navy and willing to defend 
it from the attacks of pacifists. I^t us 
denounce all pacifists of this age whose 
burning ambition would seem to be the 
sinking of our Navy, the scrapping of our 

Pacifists tail to understand that their 
dreams of universal peace cannot be 
realized today by the mere denunciation 
of all armaments. The other nations of 
our State System are not and probably 
never will be ready to follow an example 
of peace by disarmament. This merely 
condemning war is a typically idle pacifist 
gesture, a gesture not welcomed today by 
those of us who are contemplating more 
realistic escapes from the curse of war. 

It is easy enough for some of us to sit 
comfortably at home and deride the men 
who guard our seacoast, to pen sarcastic 
remarks about "confetti" and "Navy 
Day". It is easier still for most of us to 
sit at home and picture vividly the first 
attacks of a foreign power and a deter-

Vozoris, stellar inside left for R. P. I., 
probably the l)est man on the field on 
either team, from constant sallies into 
their territory. 

Entering the fourtli and final quarter, 
Williams found itself with its Imck against 
the wall, facing a frenzied home team who 
were making their last bid to tie up the 
game. Vozoris, Levoniam, and Uribe 
kept up a terrific barrage at the Williams 
goal only to have their efforts frustrated 
by Johnston in the goal, and by Huff 
Hadley, Gray Larkum, and Kelso Davis 
who repeatedly sent potential scores out 
of the danger zone.

mined repulse by the Navy. Because our 
shores have not been recently invaded, the 
possibility is ridiculed. Because our 
shores are not invaded is due to the might 
and preparedness of the U. S. Navy. 

Difficult is it for persons not connected 
with the Service to realize the attitude of 
Navy men towards war. After intensive 
training for six years aboard engines of 
destruction, a man becomes familiar with 
methods of warfare to such an extent that 
he is ready and willing to use every effort 
available to prevent the recurrence of 
another World Disaster. Those closest 
to fire are careful to avoid burns. 

So let those who love peace change 
their dread of the Navy to admiration. 
Navy Day does not glorify an armament 
race leading inevitably to war but com- 
memorates a noble quality born in our 
race: love of the sea. 
H. Russell Keller, Jr. '39 


To the Editor of The Record, 
Dear Sir: 

After reading the communication pub- 
lished by Mr. Reeves, I find it quite neces- 
sary to disagree with him. He has indeed 
missed the point and the significance of 
Navy Day. By his interpretation, we 
celebrate holidays to show off things. 
That is, on Armistice Day we show off the 
armistice, on the Fourth of July we show 
off the constitution, on Labor Day we 
show off labor, and so on. This is not the 
general way one interprets a holiday. 
Usually it is to look back on the history 
involved and consider the past a little, 
at least in the strictest sense. This is 
exactly the case with Navy Day. It is 
to give one an idea of what the Navy has 
done in the past. It is to let John Doe 
know that the Navy is very decidedly 
connected with the past of the United 
States and to a considerable extent de- 
pendent on it. 

As for showing off, the Navy has no 
such purpose. It holds open house so that 
John Doe can come and see for himself 
what things are like and how the Navy 
in its own quiet way tries to keep abreast 
of the times. It does not try to impress 
how big it is. How does one show what 
the past was like, except to compare it. with 
the present? Did we not do exactly the 
same thing in our recent Mark Hopkins 
Centenary? I believe I speak with a con- 
siderable amount of authority as my father 
is a Captain in the United States Navy.

'Round the Board 

(Continued from Second Page) 
When the "literalism" proferred l)y the 
proKram presented in the sjiceches of the 
Democratic candidate is analysed, how- 
ever, it seems to trend definitely toward 
the end which Walter Lippmann foresees — 
that of economic crystallization when by a 
continued jjrocess of centralization of rov- 
ernment in an effort to give to the forgot- 
ten man his due, the authority has found it 
necessary to attempt control of the entire 
social process and has arrived at the point 
where in an endeavor toward Utopia, it 
has reached the point of economic rigidity 
where enterprise of any sort is prohibited 
as harmful to the static economic struc- 

Fantastic as this latter eventuality 
sounds to any modern American, it is all 
too clearly the end [wint of the "liberal" 
legislation envisioned in legislation such as 
the N. R. A. and the A. A. A. on which the 
social philosophy of the Democratic candi- 
date confessedly rests. 

On the Bench 

(Continued from Fourth Page) 
Jack Hlott's Cardinals also received 
somewhat of a jolt, theim coming in the 
form of a surprising 20-0 defeat adminis- 
tered by an inspired Trinity band. The 
Williams team has little room for gloating 
over this, however, as the Hartford squad 
has been late in starting all fall and hopped 
on the depicted Middletownei's with all of 
their latent power. Several of Wesleyan's 
key men were .severely battered in the 
couine of their victory over Amherst and 
Blott made what appears to be a pretty 
wise decision. He sacrificed the Cardinals 
chances against Trinity, with their highly- 

efficient Kobrosky, so that his boys might 
come up against the Purple this week at 
full strength. Any team that turns back 
Amherst with such comparative ease can- 
not lie taken very lightly by another outfit 
that has lost to Bowdoin and yielded two 
touchdowns to Union. Both Little Three 
rivals have displayed plenty of stuff at 
stages during the current campaign, and 
probably have a stock of Sunday punches 
saved up for the in-and-out Royal Purple. 

Unbeaten Amid the stress and strain of 
Booters (me of the most exciting and 
surprising grid seasons in his- 
tory, the Williams soccer team is being 
overlooked in view of the fine record that 
they are compiling. They downed a good 
R. P. I. outfit last Saturday to enter the 
last lap with an undefeated slate. Ed 
Bullock has his booters playing an aggres- 
sive type of game that is having a lot to do 
with upsetting the composure of some of 
their more-favored opponents. Against 
Brown they looked to be badly beaten at 
the outset but came back and tied things 
up at the end of the regulation time. 
Brown took the lead again in the over-time 
but when the extra period was concluded, 
Bullock's men had again deadlocked the 

Contest The fourth week of the annual 
Dope contest has been passed and we 
find that Fowle '37 and Vandiver 
'39 are still deadlocked for the lead. Each 
picked six winners for last Saturday to 
compile an aggregate average of .626. 
Ganley '39 and Wilson '39 have climbed 
considerably and are up there knocking at 
the door with .600. We had planned to 
eliminate all men who were under .400 
but, since there are none, everyone stays in 

with the exception of six contestants who 
failed to submit entries. It is now planned 
to print a big twenty game-list at Thanks- 
giving recess so that no cut is contemplated 
from this quarter. The games for this 
week are as follows:

Permission to Disband 
Given Managers Group 

Boyd, Clement, HoUinger, Named To 

New Undergraduate Council 


What was formerly the Managers' As- 
sociation was officially declared dead by 
the Undergraduate Council at a special 
meeting on Tuesday, when the petition of 
the Managers' Association to disband was 
unanimously accepted, and a permanent 
sub-committee on athletics was created. 
Austin Boyd, Jr., A. Thomas Clement, 
Jr., and Abrara S. Hollinger '37 make up 
the new committee. 

Agreeing with the managers' plea that 
their duties were too insignificant to war- 
rant the existence of a complex organi- 
zation, the members of the Council de- 
cided that undergraduate athletic prob- 
lems of any kind could best be handled 
directly, without the complications of a 
middle-man group. Therefore Gray Lar- 
kum '37 appointed the permanent com- 
mittee of three men to undertake the 
duties of the Managers' Association in 
regard to the discussion of student ath- 
letic problems. 

It is anticipated that this will make a 
more efficient form of student action on 
such problems, since the Undergraduate 
Council has some power of legislation in 
such cases, and the Managers' Association 
was never endowed with any power greater 
than that of debate. William A. Rahill 
'37, head of the defunct Managers' Asso- 
ciation expressed his satisfaction with the 
arrangements, and said that he -expected 
that undergraduate grievances of any sort 
would now have a greater chance to be 
rectified than under the old conditions. 
Now it will be possible to appeal either to 
(he committee in the Undergraduate 
Council, or to the three student members 
of the Athletic Council, Clement, Rahill, 
and Walter H. Fuchs '37. It is antici- 
pated that these two groups will com- 
bine to form a clearing house for all 
pro))lcms of this nature. 

Under the former set-up, complaints 
would be discussed in the meetings of the 
Managers' Association, but nothing defi- 
nite could l)e done about it. The matter 
would be referred to the Undergraduate 
Council, in which body it would have to 
be re-examined. I^egislation would then 
be made, following which the Athletic 
Council would act. The red-tape of this 
situation was a great hindrance to the

To Avenge Slaughters 
Of Last Two Seasons

By Woodward B. Norton '39 

Celebrating the 55th anniversary of its 
entrance into intercollegiate football com- 
petition, Williams will engage the Wes- 
leyan gridmen on Weston Field this after- 
noon at two o'clock in a struggle to decide 
the Little Three Championship for 1936. 
For the firat time under Coach Jack Blott's 
tutelage, the Cardinals will enter the fray 
the favorites, and the Wesmen are bent 
on using the opportunity to avenge the 
Caldwell-inflicted humiliations of the past 
two seasons. 

Boasting in Dick Holzer and Mim 
Duddario one of the most formidable pass 
combinations in recent Little Three history, 
Wesleyan has been repeatedly turning the 
tables on heavier, more experienced out- 
fits throughout the present campaign, and 
Cardinal trickery may again play the 
deciding role in the contest against the 
Ephmen today. Now, relieved of the 
strain that comes of necessity with a long 
winning streak, the Wesmen will be even 
more reckless in their thrusts than former- 


Caldwell Building Reserve Strength 
With all this in mind, Coach Charlie 
Caldwell has rehearsed his squad in all 
departments, putting no particular em- 
phasis on one specialty, but concentrating 
to a greater extent on building up his 
reserve strength in an effort to meet any 
type of advance Coach Blott might spring. 
Despite injuries sustained in both the 
Amherst and Trinity encounters, the in- 
vaders will take Weston Field at nearly 
full strength, and Caldwell will need most 
of the material on which he has been 
working if he hopes to retain the hard- 
earned trophy won last year. 

Although the line-up for the coming 
tussle, which will mark the last major con-

L. S. Mansfield, English Instructor, Calls 'Sketch' 
Varied in Material, Commendable in Its Features 

By Luther S. Mansfield 

Instructor in English 
chair factories, water-*he may finish the story with the feeling of 

Strauss waltzes, 
front saloons, incipient novelists, in- 
ebriate negroes, gossiping women, and 
Nantucket half-breeds supply the varied 
material of the four stories in the Novem- 
ber issue of Sketch. Surely any reader 
could find something here to arouse his 
interest. Accurate observation of back- 
ground and character are reflected in all of 
these stories. 

"Arthur Oblivious" by Julius Glaser is 
excellent character portrayal unhappily 
weighted wjth a moral, which, however, is 
not so insistent as to spoil the story. 
L. H. J.'s "Attitude of a Waltz" is note- 
worthy for its form. Not a short story, it 
is perhaps best classified as an impression, 
or as the title suggests, simply as an ex- 
pression of an attitude. In technique, it is 
subtler, more finished than the others. 
The emotional conflict is so sensitively de- 
veloped that the reader does not desire 
further plot. In "Alone with His 
Thoughts", Herbert Gutterson gives new 
satirical vigor to time-worn characters and 
situations by the skillful use of exaggera- 
tion. Fresco, Tren, and the Chief, in 
Harry Benedict's "A Sunday Afternoon", 
are rough, vigorous personalities which the 
■'eader would like to know more about, and 

not being satisfied with the brief glimpse of 
them in this casual, rambUng narrative. 
In this reviewer's opinion, these characters 
merited more extended treatment. All 
four stories are remarkably free from ex- 
pressed or implied comment; they are 
photographic rather than interpretive, 
presenting faithful pictures of varied as- 
pects of life. 

Wolfe's Poem Most Successful 
"The Beetle" by M. J. Wolfe is perhaps 
the most successful of the six poems in- 
cluded in the magazme, although range of 
subject matter and forms employed make 
comparison difficult. In general, the 
poems show less stylistic finish than the 
stories, but the poets have more to say 
than the fiction writers. They go beyond 
mere photography ; and in that fact perhaps 
lies the explanation of their occasional 
roughness in phrase and rhythm. Con- 
temporary scepticism is effectively mir- 
rored in "Glimpse" by Serenity Williams, 
a free verse poem without originality of 
form. The cleverness of "Don Joost 
Takes a Jaunt" is marred by certain cryp- 
tic phrases which obscure the meaning.

Famous Williams Men Honored 
By Gargoyle Alumni Association 

Memorial plaques, presented by the 
Gargoyle Alumni Association at the time of 
the Mark Hopkins Centenary in honor of 
eminent deceased alumni, have been placed 
in conspicuous spots in four of the older 
dormitories on the campus. Selected by a 
committee of Gargoyle alumni with 
Charles E. Maxwell '23 as chairman, sev- 
enty-five names were accepted of the 416 

Included in the tribute which is being 
paid to outstanding Williams men, not 
only to inspire undfergraduates, but also to 
interest alumni and to impress visitors, are 
the names of men representative of every 
l)ranch of statesmanship, as well as those of 
men who were successful in whatever their 
chosen field of work might have been, A 
president of the United States, cabinet 
members, judges, governors, and war 
heroes swell the list of the famous sons of 

College presidents are numbered as the 
largest group, while scientists, authors, and 
editors follow close behind with a scatter- 
ing of doctors, lawyers, clergymen, finan- 
ciers, and philanthropists who have gone 
out in the world to bring fame to them- 
selves and their Alma Mater. 

The ba.sis of selection was first deter- 
mined from searches Tiade in national 
))iographies of famous men, from class sec- 
retaries, and from a careful examination of 
the college obituary records of forty-eight 
classes running from 1799 to 1914, Only 
the names of men who died prior to May 
1931 were taken, so that at least five years 
could be had in which to judge their works 

There are thirty listed in West College 
thirteen in East College, six in Payer- 
weather Hall, and two in Morgan Hall 
These dormitories were selected as being 
the rooming places of the majority during 
their freshman year. All others are in the 
Williamsiania Room of the Stetson Library 
where the data compiled is also on file. 
From time to time the names of other dis- 
tinguished alumni will l)e added.

Give Chapin Organ Recital 

Proceeds of Program to Be Used 

For Additions to Library 

Books, Records 

Alexander McCurdy, distinguished Phil- 
adelphia organist, will appear in an organ 
recital to be presented by an undergrad- 
uate committee in Chapin Hall on Tues- 
day, November 17, at 8:30 p. m. Pro- 
ceeds from the recital will be used for ad- 
ditions to the Stetson Library's collection 
of books and victrola records. 

Tickets for the concert may be pur- 
chased from Barclay A. Kingman '37 
head of the undergraduate committee, at 
Box 802 or the Sigma Phi house. Seats 
in the orchestra are all seventy-five cents 
each while balcony tickets are fifty cents. 
There will be no reserved seats. 
Heads Curtis Institute 

Dr. McCiU'dy holds the head chair of 
the Organ Department of the Curtis 
Institute in Philadelphia, whose director, 
Josef Hofmann, presented a piano recital 
here two weeks ago. The youngest man 
ever to receive a full professorship at the 
Curtis Institute Dr. McCurdy has played 
in such famous places as San Francisco's 
tremendous Convention Auditorium, the 
Horace Bushnell Auditorium in Hart- 
ford, the Municipal Auditorium in Port- 
land, Maine, and St. Thomas' Church in 
New York during his annual recital tours. 

For his program here. Dr. McCurdy has 
chosen numbers ranging from two com-

Hudson-DeLange, Charlie 
Barnet Orchestras Will 
Play at Glee Club Dances 

Number of Girls Approaches 300 

Mark ; Six Athletic Teams 

To See Action 

By Cadwallader Evans '38 

Friday, November 6 — Six athletic con- 
tests and two dances are the scheduled 
entertainments for the 6000 alumni and 
gu&sts who will fill Williamstown this 
week-end. Heading the list is the football 
game at two o'clock tomorrow afternoon, 
in addition to which there will be two 
cross country meets, two soccer games, and 
another football game, all on Saturday 
morning. Tonight and tomorrow night 
the Glee Club will offer dances in the Lasell 
Gymnasium with the music of Hudson- 
Delange and Charlie Barnet. 

The general crowd will probably be con- 
siderably less than that of last year's Am- 
herst game, when 12,000 witnessed the 
Purple champions earn their triumph, but 
the contingent of girls will approximately 
be the same size — 300. 

Three Teams Meet Wesleyan 

Three teams will try to take the measure 
of Wesleyan tomorrow morning on Cole 
Field. At 10.30 a. m. the twice "beaten 
Freshman football team will attempt to 
live up to its pre-season build-up against 
the touted Cardinals. The latter lead in 
the Little Three race with a victory two 
weeks ago over the Sabrinas, 7-0. At the 
same time the unbeaten Varsity soccer 
team will go into its most important game 
so far. Having tied the Brown team which 
beat Wesleyan 2-1, the Ephmen are 
slightly favored, but it is obvious that the 
game will be a real battle. It is the first 
Little Three encounter tor the Purple 
while the opponents have a 2-0 victory 
over Amherst to their credit. 

The three ring circus will get under way 
in earnest at 11.30 a. m. when the Fresh- 
man hooters of both colleges respond to the 
opening whistle on a third section of what 
is generally known as Cole Field. The

Wesleyan Issue of 'Purple Cow' 
To Make Appearance Tomorrow 

Appropriately featured by special foot- 
ball cartoons and editorial material, the 
Wesleyan game number of the Purple Cow 
will make its appearance on all newsstands 
tomorrow. A highly colored front cover 
by William B. Sprague '37 depicts Weston 
Field in indescribable circumstances, while 
the center section of this issue has been de- 
voted to program material, including pic- 
tures of Coaches John Blott and Charles 
Caldwell and Captains Frank Ketcham 
and Daniel G. Lewis '37. 

In addition to his regular calendar col- 
umn, "In and Around the Barnyard", John 
C. Jay '38 has conceived an article on the 
football rules of 1936, while other featured 
articles include efforts by Gordon T. Kay 
'38 and John E. Sawyer '39. This month's 
cartoons are the work of Sprague, Donald 
W. Jones, and Courtenay J. Moon '38, who 
has compiled a full page of satirical 
sketches dealing with the publicity for the 
Mark Hopkins Centenary. 

"Ruminations", "Moosic", "Books", 
"We Saw A Movie", and "Ratiocinations" 
again make their appearance while the list 
of contributors for the November number 
include John B. Swift '38, Cadwallader 
Evans, III '38, and Edward J. Michelson 

It has been announced at this time by 
the Editors that Emile de Planque Jr., of 
New York City, John E. Sawyer, of Wor- 
cester, and Robert S. Schultz III, '39 of 
Maplewood, New Jersey, have been ap-

Republicans Outnumber 
Democrats in Log Vote 
At Monday Session, 22-10 

Balloting Strictly Follows Party 

Lines, but Audience Goes 

Roosevelt, 17-16 

Reimblicans and Democrats alternately 
drubbed and praised the President in the 
first meeting of the Hopkins Log for the 
year, held Monday evening in Jesup Hall 
to debate the question, "Resolved, That a 
Republican regime would be preferable to 
the Roosevelt Administration." At the 
end of the argument the Ij<Jg members 
voted for the resolution, 22-10, while 
those of the audience who remained, con- 
sidering, by demand of the Log the merits 
of the question, not the debate, defeated 
the resolution, 17-16. 

Republican strategy di.srupted the meet- 
ing at the outset when a motion to reword 
the resolution precipitated a twenty- 
minute parliamentary wrangle which 
ended only when John H. Ballantine '37 
withdrew bis motion that the subject of 
the evening be changed to "Resolved, 
That Roosevelt be reelected." Professor 
Orven R. Altnian provided the only fac- 
ulty opinion of the debate when he sug- 
gested a solution for the Gordian knot of 
proper procedure. 

Goodbody Leads G. O. P. Orators 

G. 0. P. floor-leader John C. Goodbody 
'37 made his fii'st entrance into the verbal 
arena with the meeting's first political 
oration, delivered a.s the keynote for the 
attack on the New Deal. He condemned 
the present administration as believing 
that the government was "of Roosevelt, 
by Farley, and for the Democratic Party" 
in a paraphrase of Lincoln's words which 
drew vociferous applause. 

H. V. E. Mitchell '37, Courtenay J. 
Moon '38, and ,7ohn P. Causey '37 were 
the other spcakere who had definite places 
on the program although other de- 
fenders of both sides delivered prepared 
orations during the course of (events. 
Mitchell, shirt collar unbuttoned, de- 
nounced the "twelve long years" of Re- 
publican rule from 1920 to 1932 in the 
initial Democratic barrage. Moon and 
Causey summed up for the elephant and 
the donkey respectively at the end of the 
two-hour long debate. 

Everdell Elected Next Speaker 

William Everdell, III '37 was elected 
speaker for the next meeting of the or- 
ganization at the meeting of Log mem- 
bers which followed the open .session while 
H. Lawrence Thompson '37 was chosen 
as secretary and Talcott B. Clap]) '3S was 
selected scrgeant-at-arms. The Ijog's vote 
was also recorded at this gathering. 

"We want an American system of 
government," Goodbody declared as the 
theme of the Republican position. He 
then blamed Roosevelt as responsible for 
the "existing type of government which 
severely curtails freedom in action and 
speech." Roosevelt, he stated, is "a 
dangerous type of mind" as shown by his 
recommendation that the question of the

Modem American Watercolors 
Make Up Lawrence Hall Exhibit 

Watercolors by forty-nine modern Amer- 
ican artists form the third art exhibition 
of the year on display since Wednesdav 
in lAwrence Hall Museum. The current 
presentation of fifty paintings which 
graphically illustrate the development 
in use of this medium which has been 
made in America during the last ten 
years comes from the College Art Asso- 
ciation and will remain on view through 
November 15. 

Ranging in subject from the Werner 
Drewes abstraction. Red in Red, \o Regi- 
nald Marsh's thorotighly naturalistic 
Grain Elevator, the exhibit shows the high 
standard which has been set in this coun- 
try by artists working in this particularly 
subtle field. Sheer technical proficiency 
is shown in Still Life, by Charles Demuth, 
and the Mexican Funeral of Paul Gill. 
Artists represented include Oifford Beal, 
Charles Burchfield, Ijouis Eilshemius, Ed-

S.A.C. Announces Cut in Prices 
Of Caps and Gowns for Seniors 

Seniors will piiy only two dollurs for 
their caps and «owns this coming June in- 
stead of four dollurs as in the past, accord- 
ing to a decision of the Student Activities 
Council in accord with the Cu)) and (jown 
Agency. The Agency, which looks to the 
S.A.C. for its financial backing, hopes to 
cut the cost in the very near future to one 
dollar ))er man. 

In the past the average graduate bought 
his gown and cap from the student 
agency for eight dollars and sold them 
back to the agency for four doMars. This 
year, however, the price will be seven 
dollars, and the student will realize five 
dollars when the outfit is turned in. A. V. 
Osterhout, Graduate Manager, although 
making no promises, believes it almost sure 
that the exchange will cost the graduate 
but one dollar in years to come. 

"We might have cut the price to one 
dollar this year," stated Mr. Osterhout, 
"but there are repairs to be made from 
time to time, and the gowns must be 
cleaned and stored every year. We are add- 
ing a small sum to the amount which we 
have built up in the past, and I feel sure 
that next year we will be able to save the 
graduating class even more than we are 
this year." The small profit which will be 
made this year will, in part, go to those 
men working their way through Williams 
who are appointed to the Cap and Gown 
Agency Managerial |)ost by the Under- 
graduate Council. 

Professor Crawford Siiows How 
Spectra Reveal Size of Molecule 

Despite the fact that the molecule is in- 
finitely smaller than anything which we 
can ever hope to see even through ultra 
microscopes. Professor Franzo H. Craw- 
ford of the Physics Department explained 
how we can have knowledge of the distance 
between atoms and the size of molecules 
through the study of band spectra, in his 
lecture before the Science Club Thursday 
evening. Basis of the determinations is the 
quantum theory, which states that energy 
can be lost by molecules only in certain 
definite amounts. 

The energy lost by the molecule is emit- 
ted in the form of hght, its frequency being 
determined by the number of quanta of 
energy lost. Spread out by the prism of a 
spectroscope, these different frequencies 
take the form of bands of light. Professor 
Crawford then showed that since the en- 
ergy lost by the molecule is equivalent to a 
constant times the square of a quantity 
proportional to the reciprocal of the in- 
ertia, it is a comparatively easy problem in 
arithmetic to find the inertia, knowing the 
energy lost, and knowing that inertia 
equals the mass times the radius squared 
of the molecule. 

Complications were pointed out, how- 
ever, in that atoms of molecules also pos- 
sess a small amount of rotational energy, 
which makes it possible for energy to be 
lost in a greater number of quanta. When 
molecules have more than two atoms, so 
complicated are the spectra produced that 
it is impossible to interpret them. 

Professor Crawford also pointed out 
that it was fortunate for chemistry that 
the force between atoms, which increased 
with small increases in separation of these 
atoms permitting them to vibrate, soon 
reached a limit, making it possible to 
separate atoms, and permitting dissocia- 
tion to take place. 

Thirst Sweeps Upon Amherst 
As Citizens Check Demon Rum 

Weeping and gnashing of teeth at Am- 
herst, Williams' offspring, welcomed the 
announcement that, for the next two 
years at least, the town of Amherst will be 
technically "dry" insofar as the sale of 
alcoholic beverages is concerned. No 
official edict on the part of the voter 
against tea, cocoa, coffee or milk was 
voted, however, no doubt as a sop to the 
unfortunate members of the college 
community of the town. 

Williamstown narrowly escaped the 
same fate, according to returns at hand, 
and therefore may sneer at the Sons of 
Sabrina who are plotting revenge in the 
form of recounts and political chicane. 
Although four votes was the slim margin 
■ by which Amherst collegians were put on 
the dry side of the fence, "the boys" have 
come to think that the number four holds 

jinx for them. In short, they are 

A biennial vote in each municipality 
following the repeal of the famed Eighteenth 
Amendment is required by law in Massa- 
chusettB. No reason could be ascer- 
tained for the sudden and drastic change 
from wet to dry on the part of the good 
folk of Amherst, and reports that long- 
suffering members of the student body 

had themselves campaigned for the change 
were proven unfounded. "There's a 
nigger in the woodpile," stated a prominent 
member of the Junior class, "and we ))ro- 
|x)se to find the joker and expose him. 
The only catch is that we will have to wait 
two years before we can. What lucky 
chaps you fellows are at Williams." 

All Republican Candidates Win 
In Increased Williamstown Vote 

Williamstown maintained its position 
us a stronghold of Republicunism Tuesday 
by favoring G. O. P. candidates all down 
the line in a record vote of 2068, 158 more 
ballots being cast than in 1932. Despite 
this increase Williamstown had its vote 
tabulated before any other sizeable com- 
munity in Berkshire county. 

Governor Landon easily captured the 
town with 1267 votes to Roosevelt's 739, 
although the President substantially in- 
creased his vote over 1932. Henry Cabot 
Lodge, Jr., once a lecturer at the Institute 
of Politics here, who is running for the 
Senate, led the ticket in popularity with 
1387 votes to Curley's 438. Governor 
Curley, who lost to Lodge in the state 
election, was the weakest candidate on 
the Democratic ticket here. Haigis, Re- 
publican, had a 7-3 victory over Hurley in 
the town balloting. 

Williamstown reflected the diminishing 
of the Socialist vote throughout the na- 
tion by not giving a single vote to Norman 
Thomas, who four years ago received 62 
votes here. Lemke received 11 votes. 
Owen Johnson, noted author, and candi- 
date for Congress, whose election had been 
advocated by several, undergraduate 
speakers throughout Berkshire county, 
trailed Allen T. Treadway in Williams- 
town 1321 to 645. 

Williamstown came in for a fair share of 
attention during the past campaign, with 
both undergraduate political organiza- 
tions holding meetings to which towns- 
people were invited. On Sunday before 
election Democratic caravan speakers 
addressed a Spring Street throng in behalf 
of Roo.sevelt. There were two regular 
Democratic rallies, with most of the state 
ticket appearing. At one of these James 
Roosevelt, who toured Massachusetts for 
his father, advocated the New Deal 
measures and supported Gov. Curley.

Professor M. Aubert Talks On 
Chartres Cathedral Wednesday 

Before a large and interested audience, 
Marcel Aubert, world authority on medie- 
val art, colorfully described in his native 
French the famous Chartres Cathedral 
Wednesday afternoon in Lawrence Hall. 
In his treatment of the best known and 
most beloved cathedral in France, the 
noted speaker talked at great length on its 
history, architecture, and stained glass 
windows, said to be the finest exami)les of 
their type in the world. 

M. Aubert told how the Notre Dame de 
Chartres, unlike its not-so-famous counter- 
parts which were constructed during the 
rather brief reigns of monarchs, represents 
the diligent efforts of French peasants 
working for centuries. With little money 
to give toward the building, the poverty- 
stricken workmen, supplying labor and 
material, devoted their lives in the con- 
struction of the cathedral. Having been 
built and rebuilt numerous times, the edi- 
fice today is truly the embodiment of the 
iconography and symbolism of medieval 

Possibly of more interest to those closely 
associated with the fine arts department 
than its history, M. Aubert went on to a 
detailed discussion of its architecture and 
stained windows. Both he described as 
very definite parts of a symbolic interpre- 
tation, the architecture, with its arches and 
pillars arranged in groups of seven, repre- 
senting the mystic number seven, and its 
statues depicting ideas of religion and the 
story of the Bible. Likewise, the speaker 
continued, the stained glass windows are 
symbolic as they depict the history of 
France. Added to the symbolic quality of 
the windows are the unusual effects pro- 
duced by the attempt of the peasants to 
outdo each other by carrying out fantastic 
color schemes. On sunny afternoons light 
filters in only through the red windows, 
while the blue ones allow light to enter on 
cloudy days. 

Professor Pratt Lectures On 
Freedom of Will in Grifiin Hall 

"I cannot accept the view that the will 
is totally disconnected from the rest of the 
body," said Professor James B. Pratt as he 
opened the Philosophical Union's 1936- 
1937 program last night in Griffin Hall 
with a lecture on "The Will and Its Free 
dom". Continuing before the small group 
of assembled faculty and students. Profes- 
sor Pratt established determinism — which 
he said was in reality self -determinism — as 
a function of the will. 

Taking as his text a chapter from his new 
book, Personal Realism, he said, "Deter- 
minism is decided by man's own nature. 
Our choices are always free, because they 
are ours. By the use of our wills, we often 
aid our weaker impulses to overcome 
stronger ones, as is the case when duty 
takes precedence over a desire to do some- 
thing more pleasant." 

According to Professor Pratt, the up- 
holders of free will must be careful not to 
reach the extreme of indeterminism. ' 'We 
must always remember that thinking is not 
identical with desire or will," he continued, 
"but at the same time it must also be re- 
membered that final decisions always rest 
with us, sometimes unpleasantly so. 
The self makes use of instinctive and 
dynamic forces." 

"If self-determinism is to escape the 
attacks of those that call it naturahsm, it 
must meet four charges," said the lecturer 
as he brought his brief dissertation to a 
close. "These are causation, nature of 
self, possibility of prediction and lastly 
and most important, the attack that self 
determinism seems to put our actions back

A Rather Blunt Statement? 

Yes, but true, nevertheless. 

• You know how it is yourself. You feel that 
unless a firm WANTS YOUR BUSINESS enough 
to ASK for it, it doesn't deserve it, don't you? 

• Well, your customers and prospects no doubt 
feel the same way about you. This is a buyer's 
market . . . and the business man who takes 
the attitude he is doing the buyer a favor to sell 
him, is riding for a hard fall. 

• We're in exactly the same position. We're 
organized to deliver the goods, but we've found 
this isn't enough. We've found we've had to 
ask for business again and again, and then 
prove that we could "deliver the goods" before 
we had a chance to function. 

• How about you? Are your sales plans properly 
organized? Are you getting your share of the 
business? If not, we can help you I

teams will start their chase at 1 1 .00 a. m. 
and 12.30 p. m. respectively, against tlic 
Vermont varsity and the R.P.I, first year

come next week in the Little Three triangu- 
lar contest. 

Dance Bands Highly Touted 

Tonight's formal dance, at $3.00 a ticket 
will have the celebrated Hudson-Delange 
orchestra and last from 10 p. m. to 4 a. m. 
in an effort to satisfy the frantically festive 
undergraduates. Organized only two years 
ago, the band has rapidly risen to near the 
top of the swing band field. Will Hudson 
has long been recognized as a first-class 
composer and arranger of hot music — "on 
the cob", as they say in professional circles. 
He has done a lot of work for Duke Elling- 
ton and Glen Gray, and is the composer of 
White Heat. His latest claim to fame is 
the current craze — Organ Grinder's Swing. 
Eddie Delange is a popular lyricist, having 
such hits as Moonglow, Tormented, and 
Solitude to his credt. Since its organiza- 
tion the band has spent most of its time 
touring colleges in an effort to build up a 
reputation, and it made a popular appear- 
ance here last spiing at the Senior dance. 

Tomorrow night Charlie Barnet will 
hold sway from eight o'clock until 12.00 
p. m. when the Massachusetts blue laws 
demand that organized musical festivities 
must cease. Barnet recently came into an 
inheritance, which, according to local ex- 
perts, makes him one of the five richest 
orchestra leaders in the co.untry . Generally 
ckssed as a society band, the group has 
made great progress since its days in the 
Baker Hotel, Dallas, and lias just com- 
pleted a summer's engagement at the Glen 
Island Casino. Previous to this it served 
« t«rm in^he-Geo«inutr€rJK)vw<»f tlie Park 
Central in New York. The Saturday 
dance will lie informal, with the price, 
couple or stag, at $2.50. A combination 
ticket to the dances, couple or stag, can be 
pureliased for $5.00. 

On Sunday morning the Reverend A. 
Graliam Baldwin '25 from Phillips Acad- 
emy, Andover, will deliver the sermon in

November 7, 1936 


{\)ininentatois on all sides have suid about all that has to be said 
about the election. In spite of that, and in spite of the immediate im- 
portance of the Wcsleyan games and all that goes with them, we wish to 
set down some further ideas arising from the nature of the vote. 

First, we quote from the closing paragraph of an editorial appearing 
in this column on May 19: 

" Hope fur uiuijundamental resuirecHon of the 0. 0. P. lies in an appeal 
through platform and nominee to young, new voters in order to convince this 
class that the Republicans can offer something which will induce them to shift 
fro-m supporting the Democratic ticket. To dale little has been accomplished 
along these lines. What the future holds for the Republicans lies not in the 
hand.'i of dod but in the hands of the controlling element of the party. It is 
up to them whether they wish to run a parly that will hold the same position 
which the Democrats have held since the Civil War, one that is not loo en- 

An even clo.ser analogy could now be drawn to the state of the 
Federalist party in the Madison era, when the popular strength of the 
Republicans was so great that it simply could not be matched. This, 
however, should not discourage today's Republicans, for our country is 
so large and with such a diversity of interests that any party tends to dis- 
integrate if it is freed from the fear of innnediate defeat at the polls by a 
rival organization. Unless Roosevelt should be so unwise as to seek a 
third term, the Democratic party will also lose the unifying influence of 
his personal leadership. There is every reason to believe that if the 
Republican party adjusts its program to the temper of the times, as it 
has done, for example, under Lincoln, under McKinley, under Theodore 
Roosevelt, and under Coolidge, it has a good chance to recoup its losses. 

Under "the temper of the times" we would emphasize the rapid rise 
of labor as a self-consciou.s group in the field of politics. The rights of 
labor will require fuller recognition. If it is not granted, our form of 
government is such that labor will be able to get control and rule in its own 
interest to the detriment of the capitalist classes — all with the utmost con- 
stitutionality. This is not an immediate prospect by any means, but it 
may well come about within the next thirty years. To give labor a fair 
deal — by which we mean nmch more than quadrennial flattery and easy 
relief money — and at the .same time to act in the interest of the country 
as a whole rather than of any class will require extraordinary political 
talent. The party that comes closest to this achievement will be the 
party in power in the later decades of the twentieth century. 

For the next four years, we hope that America will know again the 
calm of "the era of good feeling" of Madison, and if the President shows 
the wisdom and moderation in reform of which, at his best, he is capable, 
•there is .some reason to expect it.

New Deal Is Impractical Idealism 
He charged tliat Roosevelt lias s^ne in 
the opposite direction from many of liis 
promises and cited examples of wortliv 
enterprises "forced out" under the N.R.A. 
and the A. A. A. After asserting that the 
administration liail given the nation a 
"short-cut KoveriHiient" which sacrificed 
honest ideals, he decliucd that the New 
Deal holds an ethereal paradise before the 
eyes of the American people. 

The "grou]) of Phi Betes" as Goodbody 
characterized his undergraduate oppo- 
nents, he linked with the Tugwell Brain 
Trust and said that their "idealism" 
was "unpractical". In conclusicm he 
drew a sketch of John P. Causey '37, 
Democratic Whip "living contentedly in 
his sulmrhan home with all his children 
clad in chiffon diesses." Although Irving 
Goldman '37, head of (Ik^ campus Demo- 
cratic organization was incensed at this 
description, Causey urged him on, de- 
clnrinK, "I like to hear all thi s." 

Hits G. O. P. Administration 
Causey, speaking from the floor later, 
turned Goodhody's wit hack by swearing 
that he would rather live in suburban 
rusticity than in a "mansion with four 
baths and two ears and carrying a rifle to 
keep off the American people" who had 
not been allowed a voice in the govern- 

"Do you want," Democratic keynoter 
Mitchell asked his listeners, "another 
Harding, who stinks of the scandal of oil, 
another Coolidge, who did not choose to 
run, or another Hoover, who was the 
Btooge for the Republican business in- 
terests of the country?" Turning to a 
picture of Roosevelt tacked on the wall he 
declare*! in a burst of oratorical fireworks 
that in 1932 the jicople of the United 
States considered these (juestions and 
"electee! this nmn, our gallant leu<ler." 
Constitution Termed 'White Bull' 
Mitchell further ivsserted that Roosevelt 
had carried out his three basic promises: 
to raise prices, wages, and agricultural in- 
comes. Repu!)licttn opposition came, he 
claimed, from their championship of 
"narrow interests— they want profits," 

The Pure Food and Diug Act, the S.E.C., 
and the T.V.A. he cited as monuments of 
the administration and answered Re- 
publican complaints about taxes by saying 
that many European taxes were five times 
higlier than in the l.'nited States. 

"And now," the orator shouted, nearing 
the end of his address, "I would like to 
turn to that sacred white bull, the con- 
stitution. I would like to lead it through 
the streets of Willianistown with a Re- 
publican impaled on each horn." In 
conclusion he asserted that the con- 
stitution was written for one class and that 
the time had come to change it. 

Everdell Attacks Spending 

Removing his coat in imitation of Mit- 
chell's loosened tie, .Moon carried on the 
G. O. P. fight by blasting the lack of civil 
service in the present administration and 
bewailing the air mail contract scandal 
which killed so many army fliers, He 
criticised a member of the faculty who, 
he said, "acted as gag-man for .lames 
Roosevelt" in the hitter's Willianistown 
address and wound up with the statement 
that "Landon is from a typical prairie 
state where Vincent Astor can't moor his 

Peter B. Wright '38, speaking for the 
Democrats, lauded the reciprocal trade 
agreements both as benefits to trade and 
creators of more friendly Latin American 
feelings, but William Everdell, 111 '37 
drew a gasp from the Speaker when he 
demanded, "Do you know that every time 
you draw a breath, the New Deal spends 

Landon Defends Roosevelt 
One of the early defenders of the admin- 
istration was Melvin V. I.andon '38 who 
admitted that he was a ilistant relative 
of the Republican candidate and then 
condemned the Governor for trying to 
balance his fraternity budget while in 
college by cutting out Sunday dinner 
ice cream and for trying to balance the 
Kansas budget while chief executive of the 
state by cutting out the Department of 

Most of the acts committed by Roobb- 
velt in the last four years were hashed 
over during the course of the evening 
although frequent criticisms were heard 
that the individual speakers were off the

the founders of the Log, ilelivered one of 
the best speeches of the meeting in refuting

To tlie Kditcir of TllK UIOCOKD, 
Deiir Sir: 

If ilie three letters published in the lust isHue of 
TllK UlCCORD are any indii;ation of tlie ROiierul 
sentiment of Wiliiums C'ollcut-' "" tlie L'nited Stiitcs 
Nuvy, Mr. Heurst has been Imrking up the wronK 
tree in cHlliug thin place "u hot-bed of younj? radi- 
cuIh." limtcad, it appeuru to be the hiriliphic-e of 
THl'K AMEIIICANLSM and "Uuy, ray, Navy 
Day." MexMrs. Hutchiiis, Keller, and Irish have 
waved Old Glory with a vigor iiuite amazing for the 
average Williatna man. Mr. Hearst «hould be 
gratifietl that uome of our youth see fit to take up 
the wig-wag he has bo zealou.«iy conducted. 

In all three of the letterH. Mr. Reeves, it is inti- 
mated, is wrong in assuming that Navy Day is 
nminly for the purpose of advertising the size, 
strength and value of our l)attle.sbip>>. Instead, 
Navy Day is a day of quiet ineditution about our 
naval heroes. Lovingly the American popuhice 
thumbs over old History texthooks on this day, and 
sfwaks, with bated breath, uf John Panl Jones and 
Admiral Dewey. Were this true, it might be com- 
mendable, but to 4 out of ') Americans John Paul 
Jones is a brand of whiskey or an old-fashioned 
square-dance, and Dewey is u house on Main Street. 
By this remark I don't mean to doubt the capacity 
of tlie American nund, merely its ac-tivity. 

Mr. Ilutchins and Mr. Irish feel that nil national 
holidays are (hiys of reflection. On holidays .\nier- 
ifa doesn't reflect, it relaxes. Independence Day is 
a combination of double-headers, <Tanmied high- 
ways, big bathing crowds, nnd automobile snuisli- 
ups. The same is true of Labor Day and Memorial 
Day. Reflection, if any tlu're is, is left to clergy- 
men, old folks, and invalids. 

The point that Mr. Heeve.s was trying to nmke 
and which I reiterate is that, tlirectly or indirectly, 
the element of slaughter and brutality is liebiiul tlie 
activities of the Navy. Certainly the admirals and 
gobs want peJtce, but it is "peace with honor" tliat 
they wmit, untl if they don't get it, they renietly the 
situation by exterminating the opposition. Hatllc- 
ships are still bnilt to kill. Al leiist, I haven't heard 
of any orders from the Xavy DepartnienI replacing 
gunpowder and shells with tooth-powder and 

Navy Day. then, in showing John Doe what the 
navy is doing, is showing him how efhciently .Ian 
Doeski can be disposed of, if we do not get "peace 
witli honor". Looking at potassium cyanide anil 
razor blades will aeeoniplisb the same thing, and it 
is inlinilely cheaper. 

Mr. Keller in his letter presents the oiiginal i<Iea 
of honoring Xavy Day to conimeinoriilo "a noble 
quality born in our race: love of the sea." This is 
possibly the best justification for the day. but 't i.s 
not a prere(|uisite of .sea loving to have IlJ-incli guns 
on board the boat. 

Mr. Reeves, then, is right, I feel, and is to be com- 
mended on his stand. I think tlmt 1 spei'k with 
considerable authority, since my father is not con- 
necteii with the l'nited States Xavy.

HIS job is to look for trouble before it happens. 
He is one of many who inspect telephone ap- 
paratus regularly, even when nothing is wrong. His 
work is called "preventive maintenance." 

This work is of the highest importance. It helps 
to prevent interruptions to the sei^ice; often fore- 
stalls costly repairs, or replacements; helps keep 
telephone service at highest efficiency. 

To plan this work requires management with im- 
aginative foresight and the ability to balance the 
many factors involved in 
the maintenance problem.

It's all over and Mr. Farley is prciven 
to be either the son of a prophet or a ]m- 
lit-ical prognosticator without equal. As 
we listened to the returns on Tuesclay 
evening we first were surprised, then 
amazed, finally incrcihilous, and tlien wc 
hegan to wonder how Mr. Roosevelt, at 
Hyde Park, was feeling as he listened (o 
the same returns, and we hoped that it 
was with eonsiderahle happiness, some 
awe, and a great fcelinK of humbleness. 

There arc two interesting iM)lnts about 
the eleetion. In the first plaec;, as Waller 
Mppmann (minted out Thursday, although 
the President's plurality was higher, be- 
cause of an increased popular vote, his 

IMU-ccntaKe was approximately the li()-40 
ratio that has i)revailed in ('lections since 
1020. Perhaps this figure has varied 
sonuywhat one way or the other, but it is 
essentially a mere rejxitition of the vote 
that the American |)eople has given a 
candidate when they have been satisfied 
and relatively prosijerous under his party's 
administration, or, as in 1932, when they 
have been rankly dissatlslied. 

We do not intend to lament for the 
Republican party. When more than 
14,()()(),()00 voters sujjport its caiulidate 
a party is not completely dead. The fun- 
damental elements are still there aiul a 
mere realizaticm that it must step forward 
a little will restore it to a strong, though 
still conservative |iosition. This will be 
enhanced by what should be inevitable 
(li.ssension in the Democratic ranks. 

Finally in regard to the President's 
future policy we can do ttle more than 
hope and wonder. Many supiM>rte(l him, 
not cssentailly because of belief in him 
but because of disbelief in the Republican 
l)rogram. Others voted because they ex- 
pc(!ted him to continue and further the 
[Mjlicies that he has already conceived. 
He cannot wholly satisfy both. 

In this election the President received 
a greater mandate than that of 1932. 
It is up to him to resi)ond to that mandate 
in such a fashion as Dr. (iarfield, writing 
in these columns, hoped when he said that 
Mr. Koo.sevelt in the future had the op|)or- 
tiniity to make himself one of the greatest 
of American ])resid(^nts. This response 
must come in the fcu'in of and earnest 
leadership, not the form of the initial 
part of bis sp(«(^li on Saturday in Madison 

Square (iarden. It is not fitting for a 
presidential candidate, nnu'li less the Presi- 
dent himself, to speak in the fashion that 
Mr. Roosevelt did then, however justi- 
fiable the cause. 

At this point it seems that most people, 
both Democrats and Republicans, hope 
that the President will acce])t the mandate 
in the fashion that a great man should. 
There are those, also, at either fringe of 
our political sentiment who expect the 
President to redouble certain of his efforts 
in meeting certain problems. As we 
write this, two days after the election, wc 
realize that the President is scdieduled 
to speak in the catnpaign of the Mobili- 
zation of Human Needs. Perhaps there 
will be .some clue there as to his attitude.

Undefeated Soccer Team To Meet Wesl eyan Today 

Crucial Little Three Game 
To Be Played This Morning 

Purple Booters at Full Strength 

For Championship Contest 

On Cole Field 

The umlpfcatod Williams soccer team 
will attempt to run its .striiiK of victories to 
four this niorninu, when it meets a scrappy 
and (-xixuienced elevei\ from Wesleyan in 
its first Kittle Three clash of the year at 
10.30 a. ni. on Cole Field. 

Smarting from a 2-1 defeat at the hands 
of their traditional rivals, Trinity, last 
week-end, the Cardinal liootei-s will he out 
t(i win the Mttle Three title since a victory 
over "Uncle Ed" Bullock's charges after 
their shutout win over Amherst would 
clinch the series for them. Boasting a 
victory over last year's intercollegiate 
champions, Yale, the Wesleyan kickere 
have had an erratic season to date includ- 
ing a 2-1 defeat hy Brown, which tied 

Williams practice sessions during the 
past week have been devoted to smoothing 
out the passing attack of the forward line 
and to strengtliening the team's defense 
against throw-ins and corner kicks, while 
the rainy weather ol the past few days has 
given the team much needed jiractice in 
the handling of a wet ball. The goal 
guards also have come in for some intensive 
practices with Dave .Johnston, Dusty Sur 
dam, and Si Sidenberg taking their turns 
in th(' net. 

Pete Gallagher, whose speed and hard 
rushing tactics have made him a constant 
threat to rivals' goals, will start at center, 
flanked by Farny Fowle and John Harris 
at the inside positions. Keen Butcher and 
Howie Sheble, noted for their clever foot- 
work and for their accurate passes, will 
hold their usual positions on the wings 

Dave, Turner Blake, and Huff 
Hadley, hard charging halfbacks will start 
at their usual posts with Captain Gray 
Ijirkum and Eldon Stowell backing them 
up in the fullback positions. Dave 
Johnston will again guard the net. 

Dimmie Drake has showed further signs 
of improvement during the past week and 
with Tony Wallace and Frank Foley 
should see service as a line replacement 
this morning. Tony Menkel, Vern Frank- 
lin, Kelso Davis, George Fry, and Dusty 
S\udam are likely to see action in the de- 
fensive positions.

Weakened Cross Country Team 
To Run Against Vermont Today 

In their last meet of the season before 
the Little Three triangular tilt. Coach 
Tony Plasky's cross country team will face 
Vermont today at 12.30 p. m. on the Ta- 
conic course. Chances for victory look 
iloul)tful at jjresent, since three of the har- 
riers' key men are on the sick list. 

Don Brown and Jim Gregory are both 
out with injured feet while Johnny Mar- 
shall, Williams number three man, who has 
l)een ill this week with ptomaine poisoning, 
may not be al)le to run Saturday. The 
Catamounts, who lost to the Purple last 
year by the slim margin of 2() to 29, appear 
especially strong this season. Foremost 
among their victories during the past few 
weeks was their 25-30 defeat of Union, who 
last Saturday downed the Ephmen with 
a score of 23-32. 

Since excessive rain has hampered the 
l)ractice of the Williams group, Plansky 
has led his charges through indoor drills, 
and has announced that the following will 
run against the visitors: Capt. Art Stan- 
wood, Bill CoUens, Bay Kiliani, Ken Rood, 
and 1.0U Brooks. The other two men to 
complete the squad have not yet been 
selected because of the number unable to

1940 Football Team To

Soccer Squad Will Oppose Wesmen 

On Cole Field as Harriers 

Run Against R.P.I. 

Three Freshman teams, which to date 
have failed to register a single victory, 
will attempt today to emerge from their 
current slump to p^ themselves in run- 
ning for Little Three Titles. The football 
aggregation riddled 'with injuries will 
oppose a powerful Wesleyan eleven on 
Cole Field at 10.30 a. m., while hootmen 
will tackle a fast Wesmen soccer sciuad on 
the adjacent field at 1 1 .30 a. m. The Pur- 
ple harriers will run against mediocre 
R. P. L cross country outfit at 11.00 a. m., 
starting from the Lab. campus. 

The Wesleyan yearling football team 
have already defeated Amherst 7-0, and 
last Saturday were tied by a powerful 
Trinity outfit 7-7. Snyder, quarter- 
back and last year's All-State Illinois full- 
back, has been an offensive threat in every 
game, while Green, left end, and Murray, 
center, have starred on the defense. 
Stanton, Dunn in Backfield 

Coach Bill Fowle refused to predict the 
outcome of the game, but said, "Wesleyan 
will be coming up here with a shot at the 
Little Thiee title and will l)e tough to stop. 
I think we will give them a good battle." 
With both John Lowe and Ray Kirk, both 
of whom were hurt in the Union game, 
out of action the backfield has been 
changed. Jim Stanton has been pro- 
moted from the second team to fii-st- 
string quarterback, while Dan DunTi, who 
has seen plenty of action as a reserve, will 
start at right half. Pete McCarthy and 
John Scully will complete the backfield. 
Ed Borden, Pete Kinney, and Bob Cramer 
backfield reserves will probably see action 
early in the contest. 

Injuries will keep Archa Knowlton 
first-string guard and Bob Spang, right 
end, on the sidelines through most of the 
contest. Ted Brooks, a converted tackle 
has been moved to right end in place of 
Pete lichman in an attempt to bolster the 
offense, with Captain 'Srad Wood starting 
on the other end. Walt Mitchell and 
George Frost will hold down the tackles, 
supported Harmon Adams, who has been 
moved up from the second team, and Dud 
Head at the guards. Hu Howard com- 
pletes the line at center; 

Soccer Line-Up Es^jsntially Same 

In preparing for a Wesleyan team which 
has already been defeated by Amherst, 
Coach Phil Bradley '39 has sought to 
develop a more powerful attack than was 
shown in the last game. Woody Thomson 
has been moved from right half to inside 
right, while Ned Ijevering has been shifted 
to center. Oscar Imer, former pivot 
man, is now playing right half. The rest 
of the team is unchanged with Bill Buding- 
ton and Myles P"ox on the outsides, and 
Clem Miller, who has been promoted from 
the second team, at inside left. Bill 
Touret and Walt Winans complete the 
speedy halfback line. Art Richardson 
and Carmer Hadley, stellar fullbacks, will 
once again be on hand, supported by Al 
Hopkins in the goal. 

Wesleyan Eleven Hopeful 
On Ev e of Pu rple Battle 

Coast Guard Tie, Trinity Setbaclj; 
Only Blots on Fine Record " 
Of Cardinals 


Wesleyan Cardinals 


Greeting Tcxhvy the Royal Purple war- 
The riors of Charley Caldwell take 

Cardinals the field to do battle against a 
once-beaten Wesleyan team 
that has surprised even its most avid fol- 
lowers. The Cardinals have been meeting 
Williams for so nuiny years that most of us 
have lost any sort of count. Anything is 
liable to hajipen on Weston Field this after- 
noon as the visitors have the bothersome 
habit of doing just the opposite of what is 
expected of them and jire-ganie dope. 
They stacked up against Connecticut 
State, Bowdoin, and Amherst as the undis- 
])uted underdogs and won all three tilts 
decisively. They were expected to wallop 
|)oor little Haverfonl and barely nosed 
them out. Then last week, the Cardi- 
nals were looked upon as the odds-on fav- 
orites to take Trinity into camp, but were 
lucky to get off the field alive after absorb- 
ing a 20-0 lacing. News has been floating 
up from Middletown to the effect that 
Blott's club is riddled by injuries, but a 
large part of such talk can be taken with 
the proverbial grain of salt. Bottjer, 
star center for the Wesmen, was not ex- 
pected to play against Trinity because of a 
most excruciating back injury. However, 
he was in there at the starting whistle, and 
bore up under his pain well enough to give 
a pretty fair account of himself. Phelps, 
their highly efficient Sophomore tackle, 
was carried off the field during the Amherst 
game and he, for one, seems definitely 
through for the season. However, the 
belief in this corner is that the wily Blott 
will put his boys up against the Ephmen 
pretty close to full strength.

Rpcriul from The Wesleyan Aryuit 

With u hope of regaining the Little 
Three crown after a three year absenriS 
and avenging last season's overwhelming 
41-0 defeat, the Wesleyan Cardinals will 
travel to Williamstown on Saturday to 
battle the Purple in the 45tli renewal of 
their annual feud. 

Aside from a decisive defeat suffered last 
week at the hands of Trinity the Red team 
boasts of a record of four victories to a 
scoreless tie. After an early season dead- 
lock with the Coast Guard Academy tlie 
Middletown team went on to win over 
Conn. State, Bowdoin, Haverford and 
Amherst before the fatal meeting with 

Cardinal Defeated Amherst, 14-7 
Coach Jack Blott's eleven displayed its 
greatest form against Amherst in the first 
Little Three battle two weeks ago when 
the Wesleyan team smashed out a close 
14-7 win, the first Cardinal victory over the 
Sabrinas in five years. But the triumph 
was costly as two regular mainstays were 
injured for the season, leaving a large gap 
in the Red eleven which has a definite lack 
of reserve power. 

Saturday, as in previous games tlie 
principal Cardinal threat will be lodged in 
the shifty running and sure passing receiv- 
ing of Mini Daddario, the star Sophomore 
back. One of the best ball carriers at 
Wesleyan in recent years, he has counted 
for six of the seven Cardinal touchdowns 
and almost single handed led the attacks 
against Bowdoin, Amherst, and Trinity. 
Holzer, Daddario Backfield Stars 
Coach Blott has placed a large re8|H)iisi- 
bility in Dick Holzer, the two hundred 
pound Sophomore back, who has been 
handling most of the Wesleyan passing 
and punting as well as line plunging. 
Captain Frank Ketcham, another capable 
passer, has been playing at quarterback, 
although Daddario has been calling signals 
from his halfback post. The starting 
backfield Saturday will be completed willi 
the speetly running of lienny Weinstein, a 
reserve back who has been drafted to fill 
the spot left vacant by the injured Warren 

The keystone of the Cardinal defense has 
been the giant center, George Bottjer, who 
is also a capable place kicker. He will 
probably be flanked by Dick Petherbridge 
and Tony Alibrio in the guard positions 
while Ed Rowe and either Mike Sutherlaiul 
or Jim McCabe will he at the tackles. The 
Blottmen lost a starting tackle when big 
Dick Phelps was injured against the JelT- 
men. The end posts will be handled hy 
two sets of end men, Dave Gillispie and 
Carl Hultine, and Jim Phillips and Andy 

In viewing the Williams game. Coach 
Blott hoped that his eleven would recover 
from their poor showing last week, forget 
last year's bitter defeat, and give tlie 
strong Purple a hard fight for the title.

(Apologies to Pepys, F.P.A., and the 
Vox Populus) 

Monday, Nov. ;?— Up betimes, to the 
Gym Lunch for a few victuals. So to dis- 
cover that one of our complaints (viz: 
tlie top-heavy English pro-seminars) had 
not been taken cum grano satis, but rather 
remarked on by a member of the depart- 
ment in such a way that we are looking for 
a silver lining. Then, after long hours of 
miserable rain, joyfully to the Hopkins 
Log gathering, expecting much. Heard 
the Democrats cast some aspersions on 
Messrs. Hoover and Coolidge, and the Re- 
publicans return such feelings for "Gallant 
Leader" Eoosevelt, but very few pertinent 
remarks, as the sparse gallery did not fail 
to note. Listened to '36 class scribe 
Braine give the only decent exhortation, 
but to no avail, as the tally was against 
him. Ruminated sadly on the combina- 
tion of campus apathy, hour tests, and 
thespian McLaglen in The Magnificent 
Brute, all of which accounted for the dis- 
appointing convocation and the apparent 
tendency of our two-year old debating 
society to totter off to a sad ending. A bit 
of brooding, and to bed. 

Tuesday, November 3. — Early up, for a 
mighty long morning in the elassroojn, 
during which several irrelevant remarks 
were inscribed by us on the subject of 
Tobias Smollett with probably curious re- 
sults. Then in the evening to Bennington, 
for a queer concert and election antics. 
The music was wearying, inasmuch as it 
proceeded from 15th and 16th century 
instruments, such as "recorders, transverse 
flutes, viola de gamba (cara mia!) and 
harpsichords." Only amusing sight was a 
German woman resembling Mrs. Simpson 
who sang an early version of The Music 
Goes 'Round and 'Round, entitled. Hello, 
What a Good Echo, of all things. Then for 
a baffling few minutes in the main hallway 
with the Rooseveltites and Browderites in 
overalls, ski outfits, and other ensembles 
designed to express the ladies' positive per- 
sonalities, and feeling a bit morbid, as no 
Landon supporters in the throng. In- 
formed by one lady that gentlemen were 
not invited to the election antics, your 
narrator retired with as much grace as he 
could muster, and hence to listen to the 
sorry news over the wireless machine. 

Wednesday, November 4. Though we 
had formally conceded the election to local 
sachem Professor "Straw" Allen at eleven 
the previous evening, we were distressed at 
reports from forty-eight states, indicating 
new Roosevelt landslides. What with a 
possible majority of 200 in the House and a 
ratio of 70-26 in the Senate, we fear Mr. 
Roosevelt may forget that his popular 
vote was less than two to one, and not forty 
to one, as in the electoral college. When 
Delaware went Democratic, we felt that 
our political ghost was up, and are envisag- 
ing four years of government of Mr. Roose- 
velt, by Mr. Farley, and for the Demo- 
cratic party with what equanimity is 
possible. Resolved not to read Mrs. 
Roosevelt's "My Day" tomorrow, and so 
to bed. 

Thursday^ Nov. 5. — Getting ready for 
the' recurrent week-end invasion. Heard

tude toward the fairer sex the other day,

Cardinals Rule Choice 

To Avenge Slaughters 

(Continued from First Page) 

flict on the visitor's current card, has not 
yet been announced, Captain Danny 
Lewis is certain to start his last Little 
Three series at the center position. Dick 
Colman, veteran guard, who has started 
every William.s game this fall, will likewise 
be in the line-up when the opening whistle 
sounds this afternoon, while Johnny Jay 
can be reasonably sure of filling in on 
the other side of the pivot post. 

Starters at Tackle Uncertain 

A problem all season, the tackle posi- 
tions are still the most uncertain. Ken 
Palmer seems a fixture at one of these out- 
side spots, but a three cornered fight 
between Bill Chapman, Mike Tenney, 
and Johnny Stark rages for the vacancy 
caused by the injury to Dick Woodrow 
last week at Union on the other side of the 
line. Unable to put separate sets of ends 
on the field to correspond with Blott's 
alternates, Caldwell is expected to use 
Phil Stearns and Mike Latvis at the wing 
assignments for a major part of the game. 

The backfield is scarcely more settled on 
the eve of the Little Three series than it 
was before the opener against Vermont in 
September. Eddie Stanley, who has 
been badly missed in over half of the 
Purple's contests to date, is once more 
ready to take his turn, but Bill Stradley 
or Larry Durrell may get the call in his 
stead. Quarterbacking will be done by 
either Timmy King or Doug Stearns, 
while Fielding Simmons and Moon Duane 
will probably round out the behind-the- 
line unit. 

Wesleyan has been a "lucky" club all 
season, but last week's disaster at the 
hands of Trinity may serve as warning 
that the phenomenal streak which made 
a contender out of a team that in the pre- 
season dope was considered not worth 
mentioning has come to an abrupt halt. 
Further substantiation for this belief is 
offered by the fact that Coach Jack 
Blott's forces were severely weakened by 
two injuries that may hamper his men, 
if not keep them out of the line-up alto- 

Williams, on the other hand, started out 
disappointingly, failing to hold Princeton 
to as close a score as the 1935 sensations 
had done, and then caused genuine alarm 
in the home camp by dropping a close one 
to an underrated Bowdoin outfit. In the 
last few weeks, however, the Purple has 
rallied strongly and is apparently on the 
up grade once more. 

In the final analysis, the contest this after 
noon, the 45th annual renewal of the tra-

ditional classic between thetwo rivals, would 
almost certainly be decided by the breaks. 
Inasmuch as the Cardinals have demon- 
strated their ability to take advantage of 
the quips of fate, while the Ephmen have 
lost at least one contest to date by their 
failure to do so, the advantage must be 
accorded the visitors. 

Yacht Club to Send Crews To 
Dartmouth and Harvard Sunday 

The Williams Yacht Club will continue 
upon its active fall schedule this week-end 
sending two crews to Dartmouth and four 
to Harvard to take part in intercollegiate 
dinghy races. Anxious to improve upon 
thier last week's showing when Williams 
placed sixth out of fifteen colleges in the 
regatta at M.I.T. James P. Lewis '39, 
member of the executive committee of the 
Intercollegiate Yacht Racing Association, 
has picked a group of experienced skippers 
to sail the Wee Scot knockabouts at Han- 
over and the M.I.T. dinghies, which have 
been placed at the disposal of Harvard, on 
the Charles River. 

John C. Selvage '37 and Stanley K. 
Turner '40 will be at the helms of the boats 
to compete at Dartmouth with John C. 
Armstrong '40 and F. Turner Blake '38 
acting as their crews. The four skippers 
who will try and fathom the peculiarities 
of the M.I.T. utility dinks which have al- 
ways proved a proliiem to Williams yachts- 
men are William J. Howe '37, John J. 
Abberley '39, and Myles C. Fox and Win- 
ship A. Todd of the Freshman class.

to top trim with the fast-cutting Eddie 
Stanley back to do duty in the Williams 
backfield. The rumor is that Ed could 
have played against Tufts, but that extra 
week of rest was decreed in order to insure 
against a recurrence of his knee injury. He 
demonstrated at Schenectady that the lay- 
off bad little effect on his great ball-carry- 
ing. Two weeks ago, things looked pretty 
glum for the Purple in the Little Three 
series, but, with the fast-stepping Stanley 
carrying the mail in back of Danny Lewis' 
rejuvenated line, the home club looms as 
the logical choice to send the Cardinals 
back to Middletown with their second loss 
of the year.

the Brooklyn Dodgers for the 1937 season. 
Poor old Burleigh toiled many a year as an 
effective pitcher in the National League 
and it is hard to see why fate should phiy 
such a miserable trick on him. Additional 
news along this line has it that Judge Lan- 
dis, high priest of baseball, recently passed 
the rule that no Brooklyn ball-player be 
paid more than $2,000.00 a season. He 
bases this decision on the belief that any 
larger salary would comprise misappropria- 
tion of funds and taking money under false 
pretenses, a heinous offense that has been 
going on over in Flatbush for a long time.

Wesleyan Soccer Team 
Breaks WOliams Winning 
Streak With 2-1 Triumph 

Cardinals Capitalize on Ephmen's 

Lethargy to Capture Little 

Three Title 

All hopes for an undefeated season and 
what would have been its first Little Three 
championship in more than a decade of 
play, died Saturday morning when a Wil- 
liams soccer team which had currently 
been ranked as one of the best in recent 
years, bowed to Wesleyan 2-1. Caught 
in a mid-season slump and playing as 
eleven individual men rather than a team, 
the Purple booters were no match for the 
aggressive Cardinal outfit which had 
numbered Yale among its victims for the 

Although they assumed the lead early 
in the first period when Keen Butcher 
scored on a penalty kick, the Eph men never 
seemed to have the power and punch 
always necessary to win a Little Three 
match. On the whole playing rather hst- 
lessly, they could not arouse themselves 
sufficiently to protect their early lead or 
later in the game to overcome Wesleyan's 
one goal advantage. 

Resorting to their early season practice 
of late starting, the Purple booters let 
Wesleyan force the play at the beginning 
of the game and although they took the 
lead on Butcher's kick. Coach Bullock's 
men were outplayed from the outset. 
Even their early lead was erased soon after 
it was made when Hammarstrom, brilliant 
Cardinal center forward scored on the 
rebound of a penalty kick which Dave 
Johnston had miraculously stopped, but 
he was powerless to stop the second drive 
of the Wesleyan center who, unhindered, 
dashed into the goal area to sink his shot. 
Williams Eleven Lethargic 

From the time early in the second 
period when Clark tallied the second Wes- 
leyan goal after the Purple defense failed 
to clear the ball, the outcome of the game 
seemed never in doubt for the Williams 
team was apparently unable to arouse it- 
self for any period of time and after an un- 
successful sortie they would resume their 
seemingly listless type of play. The chief 
cause for the Purple downfall was the fact 
that the pass work of the forwards and 
backs alike was far below their usual form 
and instead of making accurate and con- 
trolled kicks, for the most part they 
slugged at the ball and inevitably it would 
travel straight to a waiting Wesleyan 
defense man. 

At times during the encounter indi- 
viduals in the Purple forward line played 
well and sometimes excellently but it was 
always individual brilliance and team 
work was non-existent. The backfield, 
however, although not playing their best 
game of the season by any means, was 
nearer their usual form than were the

Wesleyan Football Encounter Sees 

Colorful Infiujc of Visitors 

to Williamstown 

Inability to capitalize on numerous scor- 
ing opportunities prevented a rejuvenated 
yearling soccer team from overcoming a 
Wesleyan outfit, outclassed in every de- 
partment of the game by the tight defen- 
sive play and the fast moving forward wall 
of the Purple eleven, as the contest on Cole 
Field Saturday morning ended in a score- 
less tie after two overtime periods. While 
soccer and football was being played on 
Cole Field, the Freshman cross country 
team was nosing out a well-balanced group 
from R.P.I. 26-30, on the Taconio Course. 

Coming back after two previous defeats 
by Deerfield and Williston, the Purple 
booters gave every evidence in the early 
stages of the game that the final outcome 
would favor Williams eleven. Woody 
Thomson, moved from center half to right 
inside, at the start of the second frame 
nianaged to get his toe on the ball after a 
long arching comer kick from Bill Buding- 
ton's foot drew the Wesleyan goalie out of 
(Continued on Fourth Page) 

An aerial attack and a blocked punt 
midway in the fourth quarter led to two 
touchdowns which gave the Wesleyan 
yearling football team a 12-0 victory over 
Williams on Cole field Saturday morning. 
This triumph gave the visitors the Little 
Three title, as they have already defeated 
Amherst 7-0. 

After being held scoreless for the first 
three periods by a fighting Purple yearling 
outfit, the Cardinals unleashed a powerful 
aerial attack which led to the first score. 
Standing on his own 20-yard line, Pete 
Peterson, visitors' left half, threw a 
25-yard pass to John Greene, left end, who 
was downed on Williams' 42-yard stripe, 
netting a first down. The march con- 
tinued when Wesleyan, taking advantage 
of a penalty against the home team, ad- 
vanced the ball to the 32-yard line. 
Again the Cardinals took to the air with 
Peterson hurling a 15-yard pass to Ander- 
son, the right end, and the latter was 
knocked out of bounds on the 13-yard 
stripe. After a line buck and two passes 
failed to gain against an aroused Williams 
team, Peterson again hurled an accurate 
aerial to Anderson who caught the ball in 
the end zone for the first score of the game. 
Hu Howard, Williams center, then blocked 
the try for the extra point. 

Anderson Blocks Stanton's Kicks 
About three minutes later, Wesleyan 
registered their second score of the con- 
test on a blocked punt, Jim Stanton,

Cheers, football bands, and swing 
music once more resounded in Williams- 
town as the Friday night dance to the 
torried rhythms of Hudson-Delange or- 
chestra ushered in the festive week-end of 
the Wesleyan football game. Increasing 
numbers of alumni thronged Spring Street 
and the fraternity houses until game time, 
while the arrival of the fair contingents 
from metropolitan New York, Boston, and 
various schools and colleges assured the 
social success of tlie traditional grid en- 

The black and white of Friday evening 
gave way to grey and brown on a gloomy 
Saturday morning when alumni, under- 
graduates, and their guests gathered on 
Cole Field to watch the Freshman foot- 
ball struggle, and to catch a brief glimpse 
of the Varsity and yearling soccer tilts 
between the halves. Then followed the 
madhouse of the before-the-game lunch, 
gay crowds pouring down Spring Street 
under a leaden sky, and the colorful pan- 
demonium of the Williams-Wesleyan foot- 
ball game itself, dogs and all. 

Alumni Meet at Inn 

The victory chimes of the chapel 
clanged, the band blared up Spring Street, 
and "Well, if we can beat Wesleyan we 
certainly ought to take Amherst!" was on 
everyone's lips as three hundred alumni 
gathered for the annual "Win, Lose, or 
Draw" reunion at the Williams Inn, where 
Professor Charles L. Safford '92 and Henry 
K. Greer '22 led the singing and victory 
celebration. Among the returning grad- 
uates were Herbert H. Lehman '99, 
Governor of New York State, and John 
C. Jay '01, President of the Alumni 
Association. Undergraduates and girls 
thronged the fraternity houses and the 
Garfield Club where tea dances and var- 
ious social festivities continued until the 
early evening. 

Below the red, white, and orange 
streamers of the gymnasium Charlie 
Barnet and his orchestra played for the 
couples who swarmed the floor for the 
informal dance Saturday evening which 
climaxed the week-end whirl. Sunday 
afternoon saw the departure of alumni 
and girls for "civilization" while the 
scream of automobiles' second gear and 
the roaring of outward-bound trains coin- 
cided fittingly with the first cold drizzles 
of the long-threatening rain. 

Amherst Overwhelms Vermont, 
48-0, in Easy Contest Saturday 

While Williams was subduing Wesleyan 
Saturday afternoon, thus making itself a 
strong contender for Little Three honors, 
the Lord Jeffs of Amherst experienced a 
field day at Burlington, Vt., downing the 
University of Vermont 48-0, more than 
twice the score that the Purple rolled up 
against the Catamounts. 

Handicapped by a muddy field which 
negated any passing offense, the Sabrinas 
used a strong ground attack to score in 
every period, most of the yardage being 
gained on end sweeps. The two Patten- 
gills, Christman, Joys, and Michell were 
outstanding for Amherst on the offense, 
while the Jeff defense did not allow Ver- 
mont to drive across midfield once during 
the contest. 

Amherst's record, as it prepares for the 
final game next Saturday, includes two 
defeats at the hands of Wesleyan and 
Harvard, the latter being an early season 
game, and the Sabrinas finding Wesleyan 
at what was apparently the peak of the 
Cardinals' season. The only two mutual 
opponents of Williams and the Jeffs have 
been Wesleyan and Vermont and the re- 
sults in these cases have proved absolutely 
contradictory as to the relative strength 
of the teams.

Four times Saturday the Williams foot- 
ball team capitalized on the return to tlie 
starting line-up of Eddie Stanley to pile up 
an impressive 32-7 win over a favored 
Wesleyan eleven and assure themselves of 
at least a three way tie for the Little Tlnee 
championship of 1936. Counting on 
quick thrusts at the V)eginning of the first 
and third periods, and going on to crush an 
out-powered Cardinal outfit in the final 
quarter, Coach Charlie Caldwell's machine 
established itself in a strong position for 
the coming Amherst struggle by com- 
pletely outclassing its foes from Middle- 
town in a onesided struggle on Weston 
Field before 8,500 spectators. 

Stanley, Fielding Simmons, and Doug 
Stearns needed only four and a half min- 
utes to acquire the first half score of the 
Ephmen, when in nine plays this trium- 
virate drove the ball across the visitors' 
goal for the first touchdown of the game. 
Tim King converted on a placement, and 
the Purple seemed well on its way to its 
third successive win over Jack Blott's 
forces; but Williams had reckoned without 
Dick Holzer and Mim Daddario. 
Daddario Only Cardinal Scorer 
This duo, failing in their dreaded aerial 
attack, shot off tackle for important gains, 
Holzer accounting for the longest single 
run of the game when he raced thirty-two 
yards to the Williams one-yard stripe, 
where he was pulled down by Stanley, and 
Daddario skirting the left side of the line 
for the Wesmen's only score of the after- 
noon. The Cardinal and Black kept the 
upper hand throughout the second quarter, 
Hank Slingerland checking a real threat by 
intercepting one of Holzer's forwards on his 
own 10-yard line and returning it to the 
38-yard marker as the halt ended. 

Captain Danny Lewis set the stage for 
the crowning blow to Wesleyan's title 
hopes by intercepting a Cardinal early 
in the third period on the visitors' 27-yard 
stripe. The Purple backfield again took it 
upon themselves to assume the upper hand 
by ripping off the distance to the goal in 
three plays, Stanley accounting for the last 
twenty-two yards on a right-end sweep. 
King failed to convert, but from the weari- 
ness of the Cardinal forward wall, it was 
obvious that it was only a question of time 
before the home forces started to roll. 
Purple Tests Aerial Attack 
Having successfully stemmed the Wes- 
men's forward attack, King now also took 
to the air, consistently piercing the Cardi- 
nal defense with short passes over the line 
for small gains that caught the visitors un- 
prepared and simplified the runs, for first 
downs executed by Stanley, Simmons and 
Doug Stearns. Daddario was given sev- 
eral chances to show what he could do, but 
was repeatedly stopped at the line of scrim- 
mage. Captain Ketcham, Holzer and he 
gaining a scant seven yards by rusliing dur- 
ing the entire third period. 

Coach Caldwell presented a revamped 
line-up for the encounter in an effort to get 
the maximum strength in pass defense out 
of his starters. Doug Stearns, relinquish- 
ing his quarterback duties, turned in a bet- 
ter than satisfactory piece of work at full, 
while Timmy King, starting a Little Three 
contest in his first season of college football 
acted with a precision at quarter that left 
little to be desired. The Cardinals com- 
pleted but seven of twenty-two passes, 
while five were intercepted. Only in the 
closing moments of play when Wesleyan 
completed four consecutive forwards for a 
total of forty-nine yards, one of these on an 
interference decision, was the strength of 
the Wesmen 's aerial attack felt. 
The one bright light in the Cardinal of-

Armistice Day has probably never 
found the world so close to the brink 
of a major war. On the European 
continent popular opinion is fatalis- 
tically resigning itself to the inevi- 
tability of conflict, while in this 
country we are endeavoring to es- 
cape the possibility by the boot- 
strap method of neutrality legisla- 

If we believed that war can never 
be abolished, we would be ashamed 
to honor the memory of the un- 
known soldier. We refuse to admit 
that forces beyond its control have 
imposed this curse on mankind. 
We believe that war comes ulti- 
mately from the false notion that 
there is a conflict of interest be- 
tween groups of men known as 
nations. We repeat the assertion 
that nationality is a state of mind — 
a state of mind which in the past has 
done much for the progress of the 
human race, but which today is the 
barrier to the orderly development 
of man in his traditional rights of 
life, liberty, and the pursuit of hap- 
piness. The last quarter of a cen- 
tury has shown that the idea of 
nationality and of collective se- 
curity are not yet compatible. 

And yet in some countries the 
nation-state continues to be a 
bulwark of these rights. In this 
nation, in spite of sore thumbs such 
as Tampa and Terre Haute, and the 
pitiful niou things of certain po- 
litical medicine men, the idea of 
nationality has in large measure 
succeeded. But if we are to con- 
tinue in this luxury of patriotism, 
we must do something to justify 
ourselves. We must adhere to the 
doctrines of democracy, and we 
must show in our foreign relations 
as a nation a more thorough aware- 
ness of the community of world in- 
terest, and as private citizens a more 
active concern for the extension of 
objective truth throughout the

forwards. Dave Close, one man on the 
team who always can be relied upon to 
play a consistent game, came through in 
his usual style while Captain Gray 
Larkum, Huff Hadley, and Kelso Davis 
played consistently well. 

The loss of Turner Blake, hard charging 
center halfback, who was forced to leave 
the game after the first period with the ag- 
gravation of an old shin injury, also slowed 
down the Williams offense which had 
shone so brightly throughout the week's 
practices and in the recent games. Credit

New Company to Reopen 
Williamstown Textile Mill 

Wire Manufacturing in Boyd Plant 

May Mean Employment For 

800 Townspeople 

The outlook for the future of many un- 
employed in Williamstown grew much 
brighter last week with the announcement 
that the Boyd Textile Mill, which is 
located on Water Street and has been in- 
active for the past six years, has been 
bought by the Cornish Wire Co. of New 
Jersey, and that operations will be re- 
sumed in the very near future. The 
transaction has been made through Mr. 
Hiram Bacon, who bought the property in 
1931 after the miill folded up the year 

According to Mr. Bacon, who owns 
Bacon's Garage on Water St., it is ex- 
pected that 100 men and women will be 
employed immediately upon the com- 
mencement of activities, and it is possible 
that as many as 700 more will be hired 
when the mill gets into full swing. "This 
is a great boom for Williamstown," Mr. 
Bacon said Sunday, "and a lot of fellows 
here — cspeciallyyoungmen — will be tickled 
pink to get something to do." 

Jersey Labor Trouble Held Cause 
Mr. Bacon feels that the main reason 
why the New Jersey company has taken 
the trouble to move up here is that labor 
troubles have been increasing in that state 
lately. According to Mr. Bacon, the 
unions there are so strong that they are 
practically able to dictate the management 
of the mill operations wherever they in- 
fluence the workers, and this situation 
has become more and more difficult for the 

Among other advantages of the new lo- 
cation are the better labor conditions here, 
Williamstown's favorable situation near 
Boston, New York, and Albany, and the 
fact that Massachusetts levies only ap- 
proximately one-seventh or one-eighth the 
tax on machinery that New Jersey does.

the Williams group, extending himself for 
the first time and indicating that the trian- 
gular tilt with Amherst and Wesleyan next 
Saturday will not be lacking in potential 
scoring material from the Williams corner. 
Steel Takes Lead Halfway 

Doc Seeley's starting gun sent the har- 
riers off at a fast clip as Captain Art Stan- 
wood went to the head of the column. The 
remaining members of both teams were 
bunched pretty well together as they 
started up the first of the difficult hills. It 
was here that three of the Ephmen, Kiliani, 
CoUens, and Marshall, first showed their 
hands as they edged out in front. Steel of 
the visitors, however, was running easily 
close behind along with his team-mate, 
Lamson, while the rest of the field was 
strung out far in back. 

Coming into the half-way mark, the 
positions had not changed and the Purple 
still held the first three places. But on 
the second repetition of the muddy course, 
the Catamounts, who had evidently been 
following the Williams leaders because of 
their unfamiliarity with the distance, 
forged into first and second, and kept 
these positions past the barn just before 
entering Weston field, at the same time in- 
creasing their lead by a wide margin. Ob- 
servers at this turn generally conceded 
Vermont the first two places. 

Triangular Meet Friday 

Kiliani, however, was still making a 
strong bid, and rounded the last tmn on 
the finishing field to put on one of the 
hardest sprints seen this season. Taking 
Lamson in his stride, he could not quite 
pass the veteran Steel and ended the con- 
test in a disappointing second place. Col- 
lens, although out of the main scoring pic- 
ture, crossed the line approximately 20 
yards behind Lamson to tally for fourth 
position, while Marshall finished a minute 
later. Lou Brooks, who had been running 
in ninth the greater part of the meet, had 
his own duel with Hathaway of the Cata- 
mounts and took the visitor by 30 feet to 
tally one notch higher in the scoring col- 
umn, followed shortly afterwards by Ken 

The Little Three meet will mark the 
final contest for the Purple harriers when 
they journey to Middletown, to run 
against Amherst and Wesleyan at 3.30 p. 
m. on Friday afternoon. Although Wil- 
liams won the cross country crown last 
year, scoring 32 points to Amherst's 38 
and Wesleyan's 61, none of the three teams 
enters the contest as a favorite. 

Both the Wesmen and the Sabrinas have 
especially strong clubs this year. The 
Cardinal group, composed of sophomores 

One Lap The Purple warriors showed a 
Completed world of improvement in 
downing the Wesleyans by 
such a decisive margin but it is our hunch 
that the chief margin of difference between 
the two teams was in the excellent physical 
condition of Charley Caldwell's men. 
During the first half, wliich ended with the 
score deadlocked, the Wesmen fought back 
and even managed to pile up a slight ad- 
vantage in the statistics. But after the 
intermission, the Ephmen seemed to gain 
momentum as the game progressed w'hile 
the visitors gradually lost steam. Every 
time-out found the Cardinals sprawled out 
on the grass and the winners standing 
around waiting for tilings to get going 

This week may be u different story with 
the Sabrinas only too ready to draw blood 
at the expense of the defending champs. 
Amherst apparently lias the stuff, but 
Jordan has had a touuli time putting the 
right pieces togetlier. However, that 
cruslier that the Lord Jeffs put on the 
hapless Vermont club is ominous and it 
looks as though Captain Kennedy's wasp- 
jerseyed eleven has at lust shifted into high 
gear with an eye to scrambling the I^ittle 
Three standings. Neitlier team has much 
cause for over-confidence and, as things 
now stand, a good old-fashioned dog fight 
can be looked for on Pratt Field tliis 

Another The fifth week has been corn- 
Week pleted in the football predictions 
contest and we find the contest- 
ants pretty well bunched for a change. The 
tie for the lead has been broken and we find 
Vandeveer '39 resting in undisputed first 
place with a .600 average. No man is be- 
low .450 at present and there is still plenty 
of leeway with the competition running 
through the Thanksgiving recess. Tlie

Little Three Football Title

Purple quarterback, standing on his own 
five-yard line, attempted to kick out of 
danger. Taking advantage of a bad pass 
from center, Anderson of Wesleyan 
charged in over the right side of the line to 
block the punt, and scooping up the ball on 
the six-yard mark, carried it over the goal 
line to make the score 12-0. Peterson then 
missed a dropkick for the extra point. 

The Williams offense, although it reeled 
off more first downs than the visitors, 
could not seem to function inside Wes- 
leyan's 30-yard line. Clearly outplaying 
the Cardinals in the first half, the home 
team did not have the scoring punch after 
it had advanced the ball into the visitors' 
territory. .John Scully showed up well on 
the offense for Williams as he continually 
pierced Wesleyan's line for gains of five 
and six yards, with Ray Kirk and Pete 
McCarthy also doing good work in that 
department. Dud Head, Captain Brad 
Wood, and Warner Baird smothered the

fensive was the superb punting of Dick 
Holzer, who regularly out-kicked the Wil- 
liams' hooters throughout the afternoon. 
With three minutes left to play, an entirely 
new team took the field for the Ephmen, 
Pete Seay standing out as the only consis- 
ent ground-gainer in this reserve combina- 

Not once did Williams miss an oppor- 
tunity to score. The break for the fourth 
counter came on a blocked kick which Dick 
Colman stopped and Phil Stearns recov- 
ered on the 28-yard line. The stands had 
begun to chant, "We want a touchdown" 
for the second time during the afternoon, 
when Stanley made a sensational spurt to 
the one-yard stripe. It took but a single 
play to put the ball over the final chalked 
line, and it was just a question of minutes 
until Hank Slingerland had again inter- 
cepted a pass, this time on the Cardinal 30- 
yard line, and the cycle had started again. 
Cardinal Line Outplayed 

Besides Daddario and Holzer, Carl Hul- 
tine was outstanding for the invaders. 
Together with George Bottjer, he formed 
the only bright spot in a generally out- 
classed forward wall, a line which showed 
its inferiority to Williams throughout the 
second half and can be held responsible for 
the mediocre showing of the Cardinal 
backs, so highly touted in pre- game pre-

Williams should indicate to Coach Jordan 
of Amherst that the Purple has more power 
than can answer the opening whistle next 
Saturday and that an early season problem 
has been turned into a late season threat.

completes three years of Purple dominance 
over Coach Blott's forces and establishes 
the home team as possible favorites over

position, only to have the ball go careening 
off to one side barely missing a perfect 
score. Walt Winans, regular right half, 
immediately followed this by driving a shot 
from beyond the penalty area directly in 
front of the net. The ball bounced twice, 
tipped the top board, and dropped lazily 
just the other side of the goal. 

Purple Tries Vainly to Break Tie 
Again in the final official period Phil 
Bradley's hard fighting team made its last 
bid to score and break the deadlock, as they 
took the ball deep into Wesleyan territory 
time after time only to have their efforts 
frustrated by an obvious lack of scoring 
ability. Pearsall Helms took a perfect 
pass from George Oldham and in what 
should have been a tally failed to drive the 
ball past the Cardinal goalie. 

The few sallies made by the visitors into 
the Williams end of the field were com' 
pletely bottled up by the Purple defense 
which saw Art Richardson and Carmer 
Hadley, fuUbacks, starring. Hopkins at 
goal was also responsible in checking the 
ragged Wesleyan offense by successfully 
saving several of the opponents driving

Goodbody, Michelson '37 
Will Fill Undergraduate 
Posts on Alumni Review 

student Editors to Handle College 

Activities; Adriance Remains 


John C. Goodbody '37 lias been ap- 
pointed Undergraduate Editor of the 
Alumni Review in a move by Eklwin H. 
Adriance '14, Secretary of the Association, 
to lighten his duties and to insure a com- 
plete account of college activities for the 
0500 readers of the periodical. Edward 
J. Michelson '37 will assist Goodbody on 
the student staff, which will become a 
regular part of the Review, and for which 
there will be a yearly competition. 

This is the second innovation in the 
Review this year, the first being the change 
early in the fall when it was decided to cut 
out all advertising, and to send the maga- 
zine free to all alumni. Previously only 
1200 graduates had subscribed to it, where- 
as now over 6500 copies are being sent 
out each issue. 

Alumni Secretary to Supervise 

Secretary Adriance will still be in charge 
of the periodical, and will have super- 
vision over all material printed. As an- 
nounced earlier in the year editorials 
and special articles have been cut out, 
but the news summaries format and make- 
up will be in the hands of the student 
editors, subject to the approval of Adri- 

Since there is no revenue from sub- 
scription or advertising, the five issues of 
the magazine will be financed entirely on a 
yearly grant from the Alumni Association. 
Headed by Carl J. Austrian '14, a com- 
mittee of Alumni from New York has been 
formed to serve in an advisory capacity to 
the editors of the Review, and to advise the 
Association concerning the annual sub- 
sidy for its maintenance. Other members 
of tlie committee, which advises in matters 
of policy and form, are: Harry Mont- 
gomery and Harry Schauffler '22, G. S. 
Sewall '23, Marvin Lowes and O. D. 
Keep '25, and F. O. Newman '27. 
Goodbody and Michelson both Active 

Goodbody is Assignment Editor of 
The Recobd, Co-Editor of the Purple 
Cow, and was a member of the Gul board. 
This fall he distinguished himself as head 
of the campus Republican organization. 
Michelson is President of the News 
Bureau, to which he has devoted most of 
his time for the past three years. Good- 
body is afRliated with the Chi Psi Fra- 
ternity, Michelson with the Garfield Club, 
and both are Gargoyles. 

They will select four members of the 
junior class to compete for their positions 
next year. It has not been decided yet 
whether sophomores will be asked to try 
out for positions this year, or whether 
the work will be done entirely by upper- 

Hearst in Disguise 

Motion Picture Daily, authoritative 
film journal, announced Tuesday that 
all screen connection with Hearst Met- 
rotone News was dropped by the 
William Randolph Hearst interests as 
that newsieel appeared in New York 
theatres under the title of "News of the 
Day, distributed by M-G-M." 

Although there was to be no formal 
statement issued by the Hearst film 
interests, the newspaper reports that 
"everyone knew the situation," re- 
ferring to the first agitation begun at 
Williams in April, 1935, against the 
newsreel, when students demanded the 
withdrawal of a clip considered by 
them to be war propaganda. With 
the exception of the change in name, 
the reel is essentially the same.

Greek Testament, 'Praise of Folie,' 

First Editions, Portraits 

To Be Shown

Returns in Nomination for Honor

Are Revealed 

{The following article was written for 
The Record through the courtesy of Miss 
Lucy Eugenia Osborne, Custodian of the 
Chapin Collection.) 

Tlie Cliapin exhibit for the last two 
weeks in November has been arranged to 
commemorate the four hundredth anni- 
versary of the death of Erasmus. Nov- 
ember eighteenth has been set aside 
throughout the world as the special day 
for this commemoration, and that will be 
the first day of the Chapin exhibit. 
First Published Greek Testament 

The books shown cover in date the years 
1516 to 1901 and two stand out as par- 
ticularly noteworthy. The first is Eras- 
mus' great work, the 1516 edition of the 
Greek New Testament, which he edited 
and to which he added a Latin translation. 
This was the first published Greek Testa- 
ment, for although the Greek portion of 
the Complutensian Polyglot Bible was in 
type two years earlier, in 1514, it was not 
published until 1517. 

The exhibit contains the 1519 edition 
and also that of 1621, which follows 
Erasmus' text. The latter was the first 
separate printed edition of the Greek 
Testament, for the editions of 1516 and 
1519 had Greek and Latin in parallel 
columns, while in the 1517 Polyglot the 
Greek was, of course, only one of many 
languages included. 

'Encomium Morial' also Exhibited 

The second great Erasmus item included 
in the exhibit is his well known Encomium 
moriae, shown in a first edition of the first 
EngUsh translation, by Sir Thomas 
Chaloner, "The praise of folie." A very 
pleasant modern printing of this, done by 
the Essex House Press, is also shown.

Uorth Adams * Cavemen' Discover Relics Left In 

^Williams Caves' by Recent Student Explorations 

By Austin Broadhurst '38 
Relics of modern Williams scientific ex-*been torn from 
plorations were discovered recently when a 
party of North Adams pioneers delved the 
depths of the "Williams Caves" on Peters- 
burg Mountain, two miles from the famous 
Snow Pit and half a mile from the point 
where Massachusetts, New York, and Ver- 
mont meet. Over three hundred feet 
from the entrance and far below the earth's 
surface these local cavemen found a tin box 
containing the records of three trips of dis- 
covery made into the cave by various 
parties of Williams men during 1929 and 

James A. Goodwin and Robert B. Hyde 
of the Class of 1932 were the earliest ad- 
venturers to wriggle through the under- 
ground openings according to the record in 
the tin box. They made their trip Octo- 
her 9, 1929 followed a year later, on De- 
cember 6, 1930, by Charles S. Bancroft and 
William R. Salisbury '34. A week after 
his first expedition, Bancroft returned 
again, on December 13, this time with 
John H. Rhoades, also a member of 1934. 
Memorandum Book on Hand 
The names were found scrawled in pencil 
on a piece of paper which had evidently 

memorandum book. 
With the words "PLEASE REGISTER 
HERE" printed on it, this bit of paper had 
been left between two others to preserve 
the writing. Also in the box were two .22 
long rifle cartridges, one of which the 
North Adams party brought back with 
them together with the paper bearing the 
names of the earUer adventurers. 

The latest exploration was led byAlcide 
Bachand who has wanted to get to the bot- 
tom of the cave ever since he penetrated to 
a point about 300 feet from the entrance in 
June, 1936. This time he took with him 
Howard Houser, Louis Jandran, and Dom- 
inick Donate, all of North Adams, who 
carefully equipped themselves with old 
clothes, fifty feet of half-inch rope, and 

Ropes Aid Adventuren 

The party followed ropes, evidently laid 
by their predecessors, from the entrance 
through the maze of blind alleys to the box 
where the longest, thickest, and newest of 
the cables ended. From there the passage 
narrowed abruptly until it became a sort 
of chimney down which the leanest of the

The results of the ballotting which took 
place Wednesday night tor Presidents 
and Honor System members from the 
three upper classes were announced 
Thursday by the Undergraduate Council, 
showing a marked similarity with the re- 
sults which were recorded last year. The 
results as they stand at present are not 
final, but represent the nominations for the 
post only, the final voting taking place 
next week. 

Some confusion was noticed by the 
Council when counting the ballots, as it 
appeared that voters did not all realize 
that members elected to the Honor System 
hold that office for four years, and should 
not be voted for after they once have 
gained the post. In at least one instance 
a member of the three upper classes re- 
ceived the largest number of votes for 
Honor System member, even though he 
was already a member of that unit. 
List of Nominees 

The nominations, as they were received 
from the Council Thursday afternoon 
were: Tfte Class of 1939; For President, 
Bernard M. Auer, Robert McN. Budding- 
ton; For Honor System, Bernard M. 
Auer, Max B. Berking, Jr., Tom K. Smith, 
Jr., William G. Hayward. The Class 
of 1938: For President, Myron A. Tenney, 
Douglas E. Johnston, Douglas B. Stearns; 
For Honor System, Jesse L.' Boynton, 
Philip T. Stearns, F. Turner Blake. 
The Class of 1937: For President, Edward 
L. Stanley, Richard W. Colman; For 
Honor Sy.stem, Frank B. Conklin, Gray 
B. Laikum, William Everdell III, Thomas

Prindle Closes Thirty-first Year 
Of Williams Football Attendance 

What is probably a modern, if not an 
all-time, record of attendance at Williams 
athletic contests has been established by 
Cabe Prindle, proprietor of what is now the 
town's one billiard parlor, who will bring 
thirty-one years of watching Williams 
football teams to a close this afternoon. 

Since the fall of 190() Prindle has wit- 
nessed every home game which the Purple 
eleven has played, not to mention all the 
Little Three contests of the same period. 
His basketball attendance record is slight- 
ly briefer, simply because his string of 
consecutive attendances in this sport did 
not start until a month or so after the 1906 
football season. 

Baseball is the one blemish on Prindle's 
record, and this may be traced to the fact 
that he played professional baseball for 
a number of years, so that his pecuniary 
desires conflicted with his loyalty to 
Williams. Nevertheless he has seen most 
of the Purple nine's contests in more than 
a decade. 

Amherst Fraternity Heads 
Plan New Rushing Program 

Proposed System Much Like That 

Used Here, Provides Card 

Bidding Method 

Dissatisfied with the defects of the pres- 
ent rushing system at Amherst, the Council 
of Fraternity Presidents there has drawn 
up and unanimously adopted a set of 
twenty-three rules to govern future rush- 
ing periods. The features of the proposed 
program, which is at present waiting ap- 
proval by the various houses, are the adop- 
tion of a card system of bidding and ac- 
cepting bids, the control of the rushing 
season by an arbiter from whose ofiSce all 
bids and acceptances are issued; the divi- 
sion of the rushing season into three 
"rounds", and the retention of non-binding 
oral bidding during the preliminary 

Closely resembhng in many of its 
features the Williams system, the current 
proposition represents a compromise be- 
tween that offered last year and the set-up 
now in use. Its sponsors hope that by 
keeping the oral pledge feature of Amherst 
rushing they have overcome the storm of 
opposition which defeated the 1935 pro- 
posals. The new rules, however, are de- 
signed to cover every contingency, from 
the freshman who arrives by boat to the 
pledge whom another fraternity wants. 
They will compress rushing into a five-day 
period of thirty-four dates during which 
rushers and rushees will be meeting from 
8.30 a. ra. to 10.00 p. m.

Amherst Is Wet Again 

Amherst may once more be legally 
wet, the town fathers decided this 
week when a recount of the vote on the 
question whether the Connecticut 
valley metropolis should have liquor 
or not for the next two years turned a 
dry majority of four into a wet land- 
slide of over 100. No explanation for 
this astounding error in the original 
tabulation has yet been learned, but the 
sad students, bemoaning their almost 
enforced abstinence, were reported to 
be facing today's battle with Williams 
with somewhat elevated spirits.

First Freshman Warnings 
Show Improvement Trend 

Administration Compiles List of 

Last Year's Scholastically 

High Freshmen 

Informal fall warnings issued to the class 
of 1940 after their first five weeks at Wil- 
liams have indicated a ten per cent increase 
over last year and the year before in the 
number of freshmen who did not receive 
warnings, while the number of "D" warn- 
ings dropped considerably. Most signifi- 
cant of the report compiled by the admin- 
istration was the great decrease in the num- 
ber of "E" warnings, accompanied by a 
decrease in the ranks of heavily warned 
men as compared with the laet two years. 

"They may or may not mean a thing," 
declared Charles R. Keller, Dean of Ad- 
missions, in reference to these tendencies. 
He explained that instructors are asked to 
indicate those who have grades of "D" or 
"E" in spite of the fact that this evidence 
may be fragmentary and that there may be 
nothing conclusive in the information. 
"It is merely an indication as to which way 
the wind is blowing," he emphasized. 
Following the issuance of these warnings 
faculty advisers, Junior advisers, and 
heads of the various social organizations

Adelphic Union Triumphant 
Over Niddlebury Debaters 

Successfully Affirm Constitution 

A Menace to Life, Liberty, 

And Happiness 

Affirming that the Constitution is a 
menace to life, liiierty, and the pursuit of 
happiness, Marshall J. Wolfe, Keith F. 
McKean, and Vincent E. Mitchell '38 suc- 
cessfully repulsed the Middlebury debaters 
by a 2 to 1 decision in the Adelphic Union's 
first contest this year, held Wednesday 
evening in Griffin Hall. Abandoning the 
Oregon style used at Williams last year, 
the debate was conducted under the Ox- 
ford system, allowing each team two pres- 
entations and one rebuttal. 

Mitchell of Williams opened the debate 
with a definition of the terms of the resolu- 
tion. He further described the constitu- 
tion as subject to the interpretation of 
minority interests, a weapon of the rich, 
dangerous because of its vague, nebulous 
form, mentioning as exploiters of the docu- 
ment the Black and American Legions, the 
D.A.R., and Jeffersonian Democrats. 
Flexibility of Constitution Cited 

Ralph Picard and Glenn Leggett of Mid- 
dlebury upholding the negative, stressed 
the flexibility of the constitution, and the 
protection against violations of individual 
liberty afforded by the Supreme Court. 
The defenders also emphasized the consti- 
tutional development, providing for 
amendment, judicial review and Congres- 
sional power in times of crisis. As ex- 
amples of attempts made to enslave the 
populace which the Supreme Court has 
defeated, the late Mr. I»ng'B control of

Having smaslied their way last Saturday 
to a tie for Little Three honors in 1936, 
Coach Charlie Caldwell's gridmen today 
invade Pratt Field in an effort to capture 
the coveted title outright. Tlie squad has 
survived the final week of pnictice without 
injury and will be at full strength when 
they attempt to garner their first victory 
on Amherst's liome field .since 1930. 

Superior line work and u flashier of- 
fensive drive have combined to give the 
Purple a slight edge on a comparison of the 
two teams' season's records, but history 
reminds that the combined scores of the 
three class teams that will be facing each 
other on Pratt Field today read Amherst 
46, Williams 12. In face of these facts, 
the Purple's chances can be considered 
little better than ominous. 

Caldwell Keeps Wesleyan Line-Up 

Apparently convinced that he has at last 
struck the best possible combination of 
material. Coach Caldwell will .send the same 
starters against the Subrina that trounced 
Wesleyan so soundly on Weston Field. 
Such a combination would see only three 
seniors making their final appearance for 
WiUiams: Captain Danny I.«wis at center, 
Dick Colman at tlie left guard post, and 
the inimitable Eddie Stanley at left half. 
All three men will leave gaping holes in 
next year's outfit, but today tlieir stunning 
work will still be felt. On the other side of 
I-ewis will be Johnny Jay, filling in the 
center of the line at his familiar spot on the 
right side of the forward wall. Ken Palmer 
and Mike Tenney will be handling the 
tackle assignments at the opening whistle, 
while Phil Stearns and the pass-catching 
Mike Latvis will complete the line picture. 
Tim King Again to Call Signals 

Working in the biickfield along with 
Stanley when the Ephmen begin their bat- 
tle this afternoon will be the same trio that 
functioned so smoothly against the Cardi- 
nals during the opening minutes of play 
last week. Fielding Simmons will be at 
the opposite half post, with Doug Stearns 
at full and Tim King calling the signals to 
complete the unit.

Dr. A. A. NcCurdy, Organist 
To Play in Chapin Tuesday 

Began Playing Services at Age of 

Nine, Later Won Praise in 

Public Recitals 

Dr. Alexander McCurdy, head of the 
Organ Department of the Curtiss Institute 
of Music in Philadelphia, will come to 
Chapin Hall next Tuesday evening to 
present an organ recital which will show 
the results of the artist's varied and suc- 
cessful career. Tickets for the concert 
may be secured from Barclay A. Kingman 
'37, at Box 802, or any house represen- 
tative, and are priced at fifty and seventy- 
five cents. 

Dr. McCurdy is a native of California, 
and began playing services at the age of 
nine, and at fifteen was organist of the 
largest church in Oakland, California. 
A year later he was chosen to hold the same 
position in St. Luke's Church, San Fran- 
cisco. In 1924 Dr. McCurdy made his 
first public appearance in the East in a re- 
cital at Town Hall, New York, and won 
the high praise of the critics. 

Moves to Philadelphia 

After filling the post of organist and 
choirmaster of the Church of the Re- 
deemer, Morristown, N. J., he was 
chosen in 1927 as organist and choirmaster

No. 35 


A "Williams Need" that has not been mentioned recently — one that 
could be met without the funds necessary to most of the suggested im- 
provements — is the extension of library hours in the evening. The 
college is making the' work for its undergraduates harder, it is demanding 
more research in the library and an increased utilization of the facilities 
there, and many'students find that the two hours and a half in the evening 
is insufficient. For various reasons, not the least of which is athletics, it 
is difficult to do class preparation in the afternoons. An extra half hour 
in the evening would be greatly appreciated. 

Some time ago the library changed its hours so that it would be open 
all day from 7:45 to 10:00 p. m. This was done because it was felt that 
there was a need to keep it open during the noon hour. That necessity 
appears to have^been overemphasized, for the total attendance in six 
average days during that hour was only six faculty members and 23 
students, many of these coming in just before one o'clock. 

It is always difficult to judge just how much demand there is for the 
use of the library at hours^when it is not open. For that reason we sug- 
gest that it be closed during the noon hour, allowing the staff ample time 
for lunch without "shifts", an
